Ingredients

  • 1 cup red wine vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons seedless blackberry preserves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 3/4 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

3. Stir together breadcrumbs, pecans, and sage in a shallow bowl.

4. Dredge pork in breadcrumb mixture, dip in beaten eggs, and dredge again in breadcrumb mixture.

5. Cook 4 pork slices in 2 tsp. hot oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 minutes or until done, turning every 2 minutes. Repeat procedure with remaining pork and oil. Serve pork over fresh spinach, if desired. Drizzle with vinegar mixture; garnish, if desired.
