Ingredients

  • 1 small onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 14 oz (398 mL) can crushed tomatoes or tomato puree
  • 1 cup salsa (hot or mild)

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.

4.

Remove the pork from the pan and tent with foil on a cutting board.

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.
