A note about serious food allergies
One thing we know: “Adobo” isn't the software you edit a pdf on. However, beyond that, it's so many things: a method of food preservation, a sauce, a cooking method, a spice mix… it's a very versatile little word! Here, chipotle pepper in adobo sauce provides the ideal slightly spicy, perfectly smoky sauce that pairs with blackened pork tenderloin like a hand to a glove. Every bite brings complicated flavors into one simple idea: yummy. Tip: Easiest way to mince a shallot? Make thin slices lengthwise, then slices across.

You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Prepare the Ingredients
Peel, trim, and cut carrot on an angle into ¼" slices.
Mince cilantro (no need to stem).
Mince chipotle pepper. Wash hands and cutting board after working with pepper.
Pat pork tenderloin dry, and season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and seasoning blend.
Roast the Pork Tenderloin
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pork tenderloin to hot pan and sear on two “sides” until browned, 3-4 minutes per side.
Transfer pork to prepared baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Roast in hot oven until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 13-16 minutes.
Rest roasted pork 5 minutes.
While pork roasts, cook carrot.
Cook the Carrot
Return pan used to sear pork to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add carrot and ¼ tsp. salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
Add ¼ cup water. Cook until water is evaporated and carrots are tender, 3-4 minutes.
If carrot needs more time, add 1 tsp. olive oil and cook, 3-5 minutes.
Stir in garlic and cook until aromatic, 30-60 seconds.
Remove from burner and stir in cilantro.
Make the Sauce
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add tomato paste and half the chipotle pepper to hot pan. Stir constantly until combined, 30 seconds.
Stir in cream and ¼ tsp. salt. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, stir occasionally until liquid is reduced by half, 2-3 minutes.
Don't be afraid of a little steam; reducing requires heat!
Carefully, taste and add more chipotle pepper, if desired. Remove from burner.
Finish the Dish
If desired, slice rested pork tenderloin into ½" slices.
