Pork Tenderloin with Orange Juice Cooking

Let it cook for 5 to 8 minutes depending on the size of the tenderloin. To test if it’s done cut the tenderloin to make sure is still just a little bit pink. 

Remove the tenderloins and let them rest until cold.

Let the juice boil 10 more minutes until it looks like a sauce rather than a juice.

Pork Tenderloin with Orange Juice Sauce

Slice the tenderloins once cold. Otherwise would break.

Once the sauce is cold place the sliced tenderloins in the sauce and let it rest. The meat will absorb the flavor from the juice.
