Jamaican Pork Roast with Caramelized Onion and Fruit

Jamaican Pork Roast with Caramelized Onion and Fruit


2 medium onions
⅓ cup apricot jam
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. lime juice
1 large or 2 small pork tenderloins (1¼ to 1½ lbs.)
1 cup mango, papaya or peach cut into large pieces
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
Lime wedges for garnish

1. Peel and trim onions. Cut crosswise into ½” thick rings. Combine apricot jam, soy sauce and lime juice to make a glaze.

2. Grill onion slices and pork tenderloin over medium heat. When pork and onion have been on the grill for 10 minutes, brush them with glaze and turn as needed for even cooking. Cook pork until internal temperature reaches 160°F.

3. Transfer grilled onions to a bowl, separating into rings. Add fruit and cilantro. Slice pork. Serve with onion and fruit mixture. Squeeze lime juice over all.

Alternate Oven Method:
1. Place onion slices and pork on oiled rack in roasting pan. Roast at 400°F for about 25 to 45 minutes, brushing with glaze after first 10 minutes of roasting, or until pork reaches internal temperature of 160°F.
