I know all the different ingredients sounds like they'd be insane together but it really comes together into something really unique and delicious. My family can't get enough of this. —Cyndy Gerken, Naples, Florida

  • 1-1/4 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 green peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 sweet red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium tamari soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Hot cooked rice, optional


  1. Brush pork with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill, covered, over medium heat until a thermometer inserted into pork reads 145°, 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook onion, green peppers and red pepper in remaining 1 tablespoon oil, stirring occasionally until tender, 4-5 minutes. Add soy sauce and cook until reduced by half, 2-4 minutes. Stir in garlic, chipotle pepper, cumin and cayenne; cook 1 minute. Add broth and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, 10-12 minutes. Stir in maple syrup and honey; bring to a simmer. Cut pork into 1-in. cubes; add to sauce. Cook until heated through. Serve with rice if desired.
