Oven Roasted Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Pork has a natural affinity for fruit. It pairs well with apples, cranberries, oranges, apricots, and pears. The richness of the meat is complimented by the sweetness of the fruits. I like to have a combination of fruits when I make a dish such as Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Cranberry Orange Relish. Along with a sweet fruit (oranges) I like to add a tart fruit (cranberries) so the the sauce has a range of flavors. A few tablespoons of chives adds some bright green color and a bit of onion flavor.
