I first had this at my Aunt’s house about 11 years ago when I was staying with her doing egg donation. I’ve been making it every few month ever since. This Raspberry Chipotle sauce totally makes it, And I’ve been wanting to make my own recipe for it, but it’s just so good the way it is I’ve never bothered!
Seriously though, these tenderloins are AMAZING! Similar to my Steak I start them on the stove to sear them and finish them in the oven! The Secret to the perfect pork is using a meat thermometer. You can make it without, but you don’t want pork to be raw, and you don’t want to over cook it.
I love the fresh herbs rubbed all over the tenderloin, Rosemary is one of my all time favorites. My secret to working with fresh herbs is this AMAZING herb mincer. It makes it so fast and easy to make these!
Pork Tenderloin with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce
- 2 pork tenderloins
- 2 tsp fresh rosemary
- 1 1/2 tsp fresh thyme
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 Tbsp oil
Raspberry chipotle sauce
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp garlic minced
- 2 serrano peppers minced
- 2 tsp adobo sauce
- 2 pints raspberries
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup light brown sugar packed
- preheat oven to 350
- Wash pork in cool water and pat dry.
- Cut off excess fat and silverback.
- Mince rosemary and thyme and combine with the salt and pepper
- rub over pork and let stand 10 mins.
- Heat oil in ovenproof skillet (I like cast iron).
- Sear both sides of each tenderloin 2 1/2 mins.
- Then place in oven and cook until your meat thermometer reads 145 (about 30 mins).
Raspberry chipotle sauce
- while the meat is cooking heat the oil in a medium sauce pan and add garlic and pepper and sautee for a about 2 mins
- add the adobo sauce and stir
- bring to a simmer and add the raspberries
- stir until the raspberries break down and turn into a sauce
- add the apple cider vinegar, salt and sugar and bring back to a boil
- optional - puree some or all of the sauce and strain out the raspberry seeds (I like to do half so there is still some texture but not too much)
I serve them baked potatoes or my Rice Cooker Parmesan Rice and homemade rolls. What other Pork recipes do you guys like?

Hi Ashlee Marie. I made it and my sauce is a little spicier, but it’s wonderful! Thanks!
oh man, spicier is ALWAYS better!
pork tenderloin should not be cooked past 135 – 140 degrees or it gets dried out.
The National Pork Board recommends cooking pork chops, roasts, and tenderloin to an internal temperature between 145° F. (medium rare) and 160° F. (medium)
