  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork and 1/4 cup relish)
  • Cook time:19 Minutes
  • Prep time:9 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 8 dried Mission figs
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 (8-ounce) container refrigerated prechopped onion

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Sprinkle pork evenly with salt and pepper; coat with cooking spray. Heat a medium-sized cast-iron skillet or other ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork; cook 4 minutes or until browned on all sides, turning occasionally.

3. While pork browns, coarsely chop figs. Combine vinegar, 2 tablespoons water, and soy sauce in a small bowl. When pork is browned, remove pan from heat. Add figs, onion, and vinegar mixture to pan, stirring to loosen browned bits.

4. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink). Stir onion mixture; cover pan loosely with foil. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
