Pork Tenderloins with Asian Apricot Glaze

Pork Tenderloins with Asian Apricot Glaze

Creating a quick dinner on a busy night is about having go-to recipes that are simple to make and no fail. These simple apricot glazed pork tenderloins are favorites in our house because they are quick cooking and moist, plus the prep time is low and clean up a breeze. I also love them because while pork tenderloins are a little pricey in the grocery store they are one of my favorite bargains in the Costco meat department, about half of what I would pay at my Publix. Your whole family will enjoy the tender and juicy pork enhanced by these simple Asian inspired flavors. This glaze is light and not over powering like some Asian sauces can be so the rest of your meal can be as easy as a conventional green salad and roasted veggies or more complex like a fun Asian inspired rice dish. The leftover meat is so tender it is ideal for toping salads for lunch or creating a very spectacular sandwich when paired with some Gouda, arugula, and onion jam on crusty bread.
