Balsamic Pork Tenderloin with Caramelized Onions and Golden Raisins

O.M.G. Best Pork Tenderloin recipe I have made. Probably ever. And, it was sooo easy...and you didn't even have to soak the pork in the marinade overnight, or for that matter---not even 5 minutes. This is the BEST pork tenderloin recipe. Very easy, and so yummy. I made this for the hubs and I Sunday night and we had leftovers tonight that we JUST as moist, flavorful and delish. Big yum in our book.

Servings: 6 Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 45 min.
This is a great way to enjoy pork tenderloin without the grill.


• 2 small sweet onion, sliced
• 1/2 cup(s) golden raisins
• 4 tbsp brown sugar
• 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
• 4 tbsp unsalted butter
• 1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin


1. Cook all ingredients (except pork) in a skillet over med-high heat until onions are soft and browned.

2. Place tenderloin in pan coated with cooking spray. Pour onion mixture over meat.

3. Cook in oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees (or until done).

*Suggested Side: Tossed Salad with pears, craisins, walnuts and gorgonzola. We also enjoyed this with corn on the cob and a delish couscous that I made along as I went. In the couscous I toasted pistachios and added those in there, I also added raisin's and cooked the couscous in fat-free, low-sodium chicken was to die for and the perfect side to the pork tenderloin.

Fabulous Fall meal for a crisp fall day! Plan to make this ASAP!

P.S.- The super cute napkins came from my festive Mom. They crack Daniel and I up everytime we use them..."boo ya'll."


  1. Sounds delicious and since I am so bad at planning ahead for a meal these days its great I won't have to marinade before cooking!
    Definitely need to try this one.
