Spicy Apricot Asian pork tenderloin

Daniel and I both love pork tenderloins. I love all of the different marinades that you can do with them. I never buy the already marinaded tenderloins because they are SUPER salty. Below is a recipe from a friend's blog that turned out delicious. Here is her blog if you would like to check it out: Enjoy!

Spicy Apricot Asian Pork Tenderloin
low-sugar apricot preserves (about ½ a cup)
~2 cloves of garlic, minced
¼ cup orange juice
2-3 Tbls Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce
½ tsp dry ginger powder
¼ tsp chipotle powder (more if you like it spicy!)
Pork tenderloin (you could use any meat or tofu, I’m sure!)

Combine all ingredients on the stove over medium heat until they’re well mixed together and bubbly. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly, then pour into a pan or ziploc bag on top of pork tenderloin. Let it marinate a few hours in the fridge (I only got to marinate them for about 4 hours…I might even attempt to do it overnight next time) and then cook in the oven or on the grill. If you don’t have a lot of time to marinate it, make some extra marinade and baste it while it cooks.
