  • 1 (1- to 1.25-pound) pork tenderloin
  • 4 tablespoons light roast peanut flour made with USA-GROWN PEANUTS
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/3 cup fat-free chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons aromatic peanut oil made with USA-GROWN PEANUTS, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Garnishes: fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs, orange rind curls


  1. 1. Remove silver skin from tenderloin, leaving a thin layer of fat. Cut pork diagonally into 1-inch-thick slices.
  2. 2. Stir together peanut flour, cumin, red pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt in a shallow bowl or pie plate. Reserve 2 teaspoons peanut flour mixture. Dredge pork in remaining peanut flour mixture, shaking off excess.
  3. 3. Whisk together broth, next 4 ingredients, and reserved 2 teaspoons peanut flour mixture in a small bowl.
  4. 4. Heat 2 tablespoons peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Transfer to a serving platter. Keep warm.
  5. 5. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon peanut oil in skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and sauté about 30 seconds. Add broth mixture to skillet, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of skillet. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly; cook 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Pour sauce over pork. Garnish, if desired.
