Pork Tenderloin with Maui Onion Marinade

Pork Tenderloin with Maui Onion Marinade

Serves: 8


2 Pork tenderloins about 1 pound each
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large Maui onions, cut in half and sliced 1/4″ thick
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons Canola oil
½ cup (3 oz.) Golden Raisins or chopped dried apricots
1 Tablespoon fresh ground pepper
1 Tablespoon Hawaiian Volcano Sea Salt (Kiawe Smoked)

Preparation Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt butter.
  2. Add Maui onion slices and sauté until softened, about 6 minutes.
  3. Stir in brown sugar, vinegar, raisins and pepper to taste and cook until onions are tender and glazed, about 3 minutes more.
  4. Arrange the pork tenderloins in an oiled roasting pan just large enough to hold them.
  5. Spoon the glazed onions over the pork.
  6. Roast the pork until browned on the outside and just faintly pink in the center, about 45 minutes.  An instant read thermometer, inserted into the center of the tenderloin, should read 155-165 degrees.
  7. Let stand for 5 minutes.  Slice and serve!
