This AIP pork tenderloin has become one of my favorite proteins for a fun meal you can look forward to all week. It’s simple to throw together and only has a handful of ingredients, but the flavor is intensely satisfying and pairs well with simple sides like cauliflower rice or green salads.

The key ingredient here is orange marmalade. There are plenty of recipes online to make your own with just oranges and honey, but I’ve also found local brands at my grocery store that are AIP-friendly. I imagine a farmer’s market might yield some, too. But if you can’t find or don’t want to make your own marmalade, you can substitute a tablespoon each of orange zest, orange juice, and honey – the flavor won’t be quite as intense, but it will still be a delightful treat.

You can make this with pork chops, too – just cut the cooking time and go by your meat thermometer, as the sliced chops will cook much faster than the whole loin.

    Do you bake it in the marinade or strain first?

    • Sara says

      This is a great question! I do not know the answer, but I was going to leave the marinade in the dish when I cook it tonight.

  • Ade says

    Do you have a salad/veg recipe you recommend serving alongside these pork tenderloins?

  • Carol says

    I just made this recipe and it’s great…in response to Brooke’s question…I kept the marinade in the pot and it carmelizes which is really yummy.
