Pork Tenderloin with Apricot Glaze

This was the result of a recipe search one day when I needed something to make for dinner, and had no idea what I wanted. I thought this sounded good, as I like apricots and I love putting fruit and pork together. I hope you enjoy as much as we did – we each had two helpings!

Pork Tenderloin with Apricot Glaze
Cook time: 45-60 minutes
Serves 2-4

2lb pork tenderloins

Spice rub:
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp garlic powder/salt
1/2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt (unless you used garlic salt, then omit)
1/2 tsp black pepper

1 1/2 cups apricot jam
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
2 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder/salt
1 tbsp lime juice
1-2 fresh apricots, chopped

Combine spice rub ingredients, and rub over pork tenderloins. Transfer to oven-safe dish and bake in oven at 375F for 45-60 minutes until cooked through.

Meanwhile, heat apricot jam in sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add remaining ingredients (except fresh apricots), mix thoroughly. Remove from heat. When pork is about 5 minutes from being done, add fresh apricots and heat over low heat until pork is done cooking.

Slice pork tenderloins, top with glaze, and serve!
