Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Chipotle Tomato Sauce and California Dried Plums
Chipotle tomato sauce gets its deep, rich flavor and a subtle sweetness from California Dried Plums, with the added benefit of dried plums’ antioxidant power and fiber. It goes great with roasted pork tenderloin, but why not try it with chicken, fish or even on pasta?
1 white onion
2 garlic cloves, unpeeled
2 dried chipotle chiles
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup pitted California Dried Plums
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 pounds pork tenderloin
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
Peel onion and cut into 3/4-inch rounds. In a cast iron skillet over medium high heat; sear onion rounds and garlic cloves until blackened; chop onion into 1-inch pieces and peel garlic. Sear chiles until puffed and soft, being careful not to burn them; stem and seed chiles. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer, covered, about 30 minutes or until onion is translucent. Purée in blender, adding a little more broth if necessary to adjust consistency.
Heat oven to 450°F. Season pork with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and sear on all sides. Transfer pork to an oven-proof pan and roast for 20 minutes. Slice and serve with sauce.
