Cherry-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

“My tangy, glazed tenderloin is so simple to prepare. I serve it with roasted sweet potatoes and apples, a salad and French bread for a festive Sunday dinner.” —Sandra Kennedy, Atlanta, Texas
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min.

    6 servings


  • 1 cup cherry juice blend

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Meanwhile, place tenderloins on a rack in a foil-lined roasting pan; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Set aside 1/4 cup glaze for serving. Spoon half of the remaining glaze over pork.

    This pork is delicious! I cut the recipe in half for the two of us and substituted apple juice for the cherry juice blend. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it and I will definitely be making this again.

    Best recipe on this website so far! We used real cherries and a splash lime juice. Definitely will eat again!
