Saucy Chipotle Peanut Pork

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • canola or olive oil, for cooking
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 14 oz (398 mL) can crushed tomatoes or tomato puree
  • 1 cup salsa (hot or mild)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 chipotle en abodo, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • chopped peanuts, for garnish

How to Make It

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Brown the pork tenderloin well in a drizzle of oil in a skillet set over medium-high heat. Pop the skillet in the oven and roast for 15-20 minutes, or until just cooked through.

Remove the pork from the pan and tent with foil on a cutting board. Add another drizzle of oil to the pan (don’t wash it out) and cook the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes, until soft. Add the tomatoes, salsa, peanut butter, chipotle, chili powder, cumin and salt and bring to a simmer, stirring to loosen any browned bits in the bottom of the pan. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Slice the pork and stir it into the pot; serve over rice, topped with peanuts.
