Braised Pork Tenderloin


¼ cup flour

1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 pound boneless pork tenderloin

1 onion – coarsely chopped

2 cloves garlic – minced

¾ cup ketchup

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes


  1. Combine flour, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a platter.  Coat the pork loin with the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.  Reserve the flour mixture and set aside.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet on medium high heat, coat with cooking spray and add pork loin.  Brown for 5 minutes on each side.  Remove pork and transfer to a roasting pan.
  3. Add onion to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes until soft and browned.
  4. While onions are cooking, combine garlic, ketchup, vinegar, reserved flour and tomatoes in a bowl.  Add mixture to onions and bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  5. Pour sauce over pork, cover tightly with foil and bake until tender, about 2 hours.
