Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Jamaican jerk seasoning (such as Spice Islands)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 2 ripe mangoes
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup golden rum (such as Bacardi)
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine jerk seasoning, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and 1 teaspoon oil in a medium bowl.
  2. 2. Cut pork crosswise into 8 pieces. Using your hand, flatten each piece to 1/2-inch thickness. Add pork to spice mixture; toss well to coat.
  3. 3. Cut mangoes in half lengthwise; discard pits. Cut each mango half into 1-inch cubes, cutting to, but not through, the skin. Brush cut sides of mangoes with 1/2 teaspoon oil.
  4. 4. Heat a grill pan over high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Add mango halves, skin sides up, to pan; cook 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. 5. Combine sugar and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or until thickened. Stir in 1 tablespoon lime juice. Drizzle sauce over pork and mangoes.
