Cranberries always evoke nostalgia for the holidays and this pork is worthy of your family gathering. The pork is seasoned simply before roasting to compliment the salsa which is served on the side (or the top, if you wish).


Cranberry Salsa:

  • 1 poblano pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks
  • ½ cup dried sweetened cranberries
  • ¼ cup minced red onion
  • 1 tsp. grated, peeled ginger
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon


  • 1 lb. pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • ⅛ tsp. garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Toss together all salsa ingredients. Let rest in fridge until pork is ready to serve.
  3. Place the pork on a baking sheet, tucking the narrow end under to allow the pork to cook evenly.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the spices and sprinkle over the pork. Bake until the pork reaches a minimal internal temperature of 150ºF (20-25 minutes). Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
