Glazed Pork Tenderloin with Horseradish Sauce

Pork gets a tasty treatment from a simple sauce of pineapple preserves and horseradish in this recipe. The brand of horseradish you use will determine the "heat" level of the sauce. —Bernice Dean of Garland, Texas

    I have been serving this dish since it was first published in L&T, and we absolutely love it. Like most cooking instructions (as opposed to baking, which doesn't allow much leeway) the sauce ingredients and amounts are a suggestion. We prefer more than a tablespoon of horseradish, particularly as it gets older and begins to lose its potency. While the pork is spending its first ten minutes in the oven, don't be afraid to experiment. Warm the preserves, stir in a half-teaspoon or so of horseradish (or whatever you'd like to use), and test the results. Cooking is FUN.

    Made this for dinner tonight, and I can't stop talking about how delicious the flavors were. I had never made pork tenderloin before, and in attempt to match the store's weekly ad with a healthy recipe I came across this recipe. The fact the recipe is almost effortless made it so much better. I loved the combination of the pineapple, horseradish, and rosemary flavors! Some of the bottom stems stuck to my piece of the meat, and I thought it was heavenly. I thoroughly enjoyed making this for my husband and I knowing it was a healthy meal. Thank you TOH!

    Mmmm I think it sounds just right depending on the strength of your horseradish. Last years crop was mild - but the year before would bring a tear to your eye! Just have to use your judgement.

    I don't have a cast iron tongue either...Maybe a third to half as much horseradish? That's quite a kick from the 'ol horsey!

    WOW! Are all your meals this healthy? If so, Are you "available?" LOL :)It is a real pleasure to see some people making real food, minimally prepared, yet very flavorful, without all the stuff one finds in a lot of the recipes one reads now. Thanks!
