Jennifer's Recipe for Orange Cranberry Pork Loin

1 ½ pounds pork tenderloin
1 to 1 ½  pounds baby carrots
6-9 baby red potatoes
¼ cup apricot preserves
¼ cup frozen orange juice concentrate
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup white cooking wine
¼ cup olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Mix the preserves, orange juice concentrate, white wine, dried cranberries, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl. (If your preserves won’t mix easily, place your bowl of ingredients in the microwave on high for 45 seconds to one minute.) Marinade your pork for 1 hour. (I like to cut the fat off the bottom of the pork.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the pork in a 13X9 baking dish, arranging the potatoes and carrots around it (so they surround every side of the pork.) Pour the marinade over the pork, potatoes, and carrots evenly, then gently toss to coat.


Cover baking dish with tinfoil and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Take out and baste, lower the heat to 375 degrees, and bake for an additional 45 minutes. Then take it out again, baste again, and remove the foil. Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until the meat browns. Serves 2-3.
