    Serves: 8 

    • 2 pork fillets
    • 2 cloves garlic, sliced, or more to taste
    • salt and ground black pepper to taste
    • 3 blood oranges, halved
    • 240ml fruity white wine, such as sauvignon blanc
    • 10g coarsely chopped coriander
    • 1 tablespoon cornflour
    • 120ml cold water

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:5min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. Cut small, shallow slits into pork fillets using a sharp knife and stuff a slice of garlic into each slit. Season pork with salt and black pepper and place into a glass baking dish. Squeeze blood orange halves over pork; leave 2 or 3 squeezed halves in baking dish. Pour white wine over pork and sprinkle with fresh coriander.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until pork is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Allow pork to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
    4. While pork is resting, discard baked orange rinds and pour pan juices into a small saucepan. Bring juices to the boil. Whisk cornflour with cold water in a small bowl until smooth; stir into pan juices. Reduce heat to low and simmer sauce until thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve pork sliced into thin medallions and top with sauce to serve.

    The meat is fabulous and gobbled up but the gravy wasn't so good - just a bit to acidic and bitter. I think roasting the juiced oranges was a bit too much. Maybe just some of the orange peel and none of the pith would be a lot better.  -  06 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this tonight using some leftover oranges that had started to get dried up. Followed directions and listened to some of the other comments and did not use the chunks of orange, I used the zest and I juiced the oranges. The sauce was almost like a glaze. Fantastic!  -  07 Mar 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this today for New Years brunch. Served it with scalloped potatoes. The response was great. I believe this is now my favorite pork tenderloin recipe. THANK YOU !  -  01 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
