Dining with flair can be fuss-free when pork tenderloin is the featured fare. Family and friends will be impressed with these tender pork slices served with a succulent orange sauce.


  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup orange juice, divided
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar


  1. Place pork slices in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Combine butter, thyme and cayenne; spread over pork. Pour 3/4 cup orange juice over meat. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 20-25 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, basting occasionally.
  2. Remove pork and keep warm. Pour pan drippings into a measuring cup; add enough remaining orange juice to measure 3/4 cup. Pour into a saucepan. Stir in flour and sugar until smooth.
  3. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with pork.
