I have a recipe for a Quick Glazed Pork Loin to pass along. To make this recipe you’ll be needing a Pork Tenderloin, Water, Tomato Paste, Orange Juice Concentrate, Chili Powder, Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener, White Vinegar, Salt, and a Package of Frozen Vegetable Blend. The recipe is from the CooksRecipes website. At the Cooks site you’ll find a huge selection of recipes to please all Tastes, Diets, or Cuisines so be sure to check it out today for any of your recipe needs!

Quick Glazed Pork Loin
Prepared in under an hour, this pork tenderloin is baked with a medley of vegetables in a sweet and spicy glaze.

Recipe Ingredients:
1 pound pork tenderloin
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 tablespoon Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (14-ounce) package frozen vegetable blend

Cooking Directions:
1 – Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
2 – Rinse pork loin and pat dry. Set aside.
3 – Mix water, tomato paste, orange juice concentrate, chili powder, salt, Splenda® Granulated Sweetener, and white vinegar in a small mixing bowl.
4 – Place pork loin in a 13x9x2-inch pan. Cover with half of the glaze. Bake 15 minutes in preheated oven.
5 – Remove pork loin from oven. Cover with remaining glaze. Place vegetables around pork loin. Bake an additional 15 minutes or until the vegetables are hot and the pork loin is completely cooked*.
Makes 4 servings. Serving Size: 1 (4-ounce) slice pork loin.

*Pork loin is completely cooked when poked with a fork in the thickest section of the loin and juice runs clear or meat thermometer registers 155°F (approximately 65°C. Let roast stand for 10 minutes before slicing. This allows juices to settle in the meat creating a juicier cut of meat.

Tip: Double the glaze recipe to make extra glaze for dipping or sauce.

Ingredients

4 quarts water

3 pounds ripe peaches
3/4 cup water
1 (1.75 ounce) package SURE-JELL* For Lower Sugar Recipes Fruit Pectin
1/2 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated

Directions

1 – Wash jars and lids in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Fill boiling-water canner half full with water; add jars and water to cover. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer. Place lids in water to cover in a small saucepan; bring water to a simmer. Simmer until ready to use. Remove and drain jars and lids, one at a time, as needed for filling.
2 – Combine 4 quarts of the water and lemon juice in a large bowl; set aside. Fill a Dutch oven 3/4 full with water; bring to a boil. Immerse peaches for 20 seconds or until skins easily peel away; remove with slotted spoon and plunge into ice water. Slip skin off peaches using a paring knife. Cut peaches in half; remove pits. Place peach halves in the water and lemon juice solution to prevent browning. Cut peaches into chunks; place in food processor. Process until finely chopped. Measure exactly 3 cups of fruit.
3 – Combine peaches and 3/4 cup water in a large saucepan. Gradually add pectin, stirring until blended.
4 – Bring mixture to a full rolling boil (a boil that doesn’t stop bubbling when stirred) over medium-high heat. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add Splenda Granulated Sweetener stirring until Splenda Granulated Sweetener dissolves. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
5 – Ladle hot jam immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4-inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on rack in canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil.
6 – Process 10 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing center of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.) Store in a cool, dark place for up to 1 year. Once opened, store refrigerated and use within 2 weeks.
NOTES:
The flavor of succulent summer peaches really comes through in this simple recipe.
