Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup apple cider or juice
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 1 pound each)
  • PLUM SAUCE:
  • 1/2 cup plum preserves

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider or juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour 3/4 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
Drain and discard marinade from pork. Place tenderloins on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 40-45 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160° basting twice with reserved marinade.
In a small saucepan, combine sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until flavors blend. Let pork stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with plum sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
