Apricot Ranch Pork Tenderloin

Rated 4.8947/5 based on 19 customer reviews

A few minutes is all it takes to fire up this sweet and savory pork classic.

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.

  • 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 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 Out of this world good! I will go on record saying that I am not a big fan of apricots, but used as a glaze it's fantastic. Easy to make and sure to please. Another HVR keeper.

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.
