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.

*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.
