1 c. Pittman & Davis Bing Cherries, pitted and coarsely chopped
1 tsp. garlic salt
½ tsp. ground mustard
1 lb. pork tenderloin
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. honey
1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped
1 small clove garlic – minced
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
½ c. brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix garlic salt and ground mustard in a small bowl. Rub evenly over pork. Line a roasting pan with foil. Place pork on a rack coated with cooking spray; place rack in roasting pan. Roast pork in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
- Whisk together olive oil and honey in a small bowl. Brush mixture over tenderloin and roast an additional 10 minutes (or until internal temperature reaches 160°F).
- While tenderloin is roasting, combine chipotle pepper, Idaho cherries, garlic, lemon juice and brown sugar in a small, heavy-bottomed pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes.
- Slice pork and serve with pan juices and cranberry-chipotle sauce on the side.
