Apricot Ranch Pork Tenderloin

A few minutes and a sprinkle of ranch seasoning is all it takes to elevate this pork classic. Our Apricot Ranch Pork Tenderloin recipe combines apricot preserves and a little bit of Hidden Valley to strike the perfect balance between sweet and savory. Don't be afraid; your taste buds will thank you later.

This dish is inspired by our latest food obsession, the no-recipe recipe. Unlike a traditional recipe, this dish doesn’t call for a list of fixed ingredients, so you can customize it to fit your tastes. Explore all of our no-recipe recipes here, and shake up some mealtime magic, your way.

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.
  • To get started: Using an oven-safe skillet, warm olive oil over medium-high heat. Season a pork tenderloin generously with Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Shaker on all sides, and add a little bit of fresh cracked pepper if desired.
  • Sear the pork tenderloin on all sides until golden, a couple minutes per side. While the pork is cooking, warm up some apricot preserves until loosened.
  • Transfer the whole pan with the pork to a 400-degree oven. Cook in oven for 15 minutes or so, basting every few minutes with the apricot preserves. The internal temperature of the pork should reach 145 degrees when finished. Slice and serve warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent I'm not a huge fan of apricot, but I thought I'd try this. It was surprisingly good, but still the apricot flavor sets me off a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HV - Apricot Ranch Pork Tenderloin I have tried apple butter, but the apricot sets off a more delicate flavor. Left overs are really great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooo Easy! This is the easiest way to make pork tenderloin. The first time I used the apricot, but the next time I basted with hoisin sauce. Both easy and very tasty. Next Time barbeque sauce.
