Apricot Pork Loin w/ Saute’d Mushrooms & Onions

Apricot Pork Loin w/ Saute’d Mushrooms & Onions, baked potato & salad.

16 oz. pork tenderloin, lean only
3 apricots
1 Tbsp basalmic vinegar
1/2 tsp cloves, ground
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp olive oil
1 med onions, sliced and halved (Image)
1 pt mushrooms, sliced (227 g)
1 Tbsp garlic, minced (Image)

Marinade – Cut apricots in half and remove the pit. Place in small microwavable bowl and microwave for 60 seconds. Mash apricots slightly, with fork, and mix in basalmic vinegar.

Place pork and marinade in a small, flat container (or ziploc bag) and cover. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours (can be overnight or all day if that’s convenient).

Preheat oven to 375 F. Place pork in shallow baking dish. Set marinade aside in a small bowl. Measure out the cloves, sprinkle a dash on the pork loins, and dump the rest in the marinade. Measure out the garlic powder, sprinkle a dash on the pork loins, and dump the rest in the marinade. Put the pork in the oven and cook for 30-45 minutes, or until it has an internal temperature of 160 F.

While the pork is cooking, heat olive oil in a skillet over med-high heat. Add onions, mushrooms, and garlic. Saute until onions are translucent. Add marinade. Mix and cook for at least 5 minutes more. Can simmer on warm or low until pork is ready.

  1. Hi! And thanks!

    Just a little fyi: Most of the recipes are searchable in the MFP database. Just search for "Healthy Doesn't Mean Boring" and it will pull up the list…. of course, if you get creative and make adjustments, you'll want to reenter it in the recipe creator tool. 🙂
