This recipe is easy, healthy and delicious. Lean, pork tenderloin is pan-seared, quickly oven-roasted to finish cooking and served with a spicy-sweet and smoky glaze. This is a great weeknight dish that you’ll make often. You can also use the glaze on chicken, beef and shrimp. Try it as a barbeque sauce basting during the last few minutes of cooking.
