Indian Spiced Pork with Fruited Couscous
Ingredients
2 lbs. unseasoned pork tenderloin
1 tbsp. McCormick Garam Masala
1½ tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. each: cinnamon and coarse ground pepper
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup orange juice
3¼ cups chicken stock or reduced-sodium broth
2 tbsp. butter
1 (12- oz.) box plain couscous
1/3 cup each: golden raisins, dried currants and sliced green
onion tops
Directions

Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: about 45 minutes Rinse pork and pat dry. Stir together garam masala, garlic salt, cinnamon and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside 1 tsp. and rub the remaining mixture onto the pork. Cook pork in hot oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet until well browned on all sides. Cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes. Add orange juice to skillet; cook, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes more or until liquid is reduced to a glaze and meat reaches 150°F internally. While pork is cooking, bring chicken stock, butter and reserved 1 tsp. seasoning mixture to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in couscous and fruit; cover and remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes, then add green onions and fluff with a fork. Serve thin slices of pork over couscous. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
