Spicy Pineapple Pork


4 tablespoons (60m) butter, divided
2 – 1 pound (1kg) pork tenderloins, cut into 8 medallions each
Salt (to sprinkle over pork medallions)
Bigelow Constant Comment® Tea Bags – allow to steep for 10 minutes
¾ (180mL) hot water
1 medium red bell pepper
1 cup (250mL) pineapple chunks, drained, reserve juice
2 tablespoons (30mL) fresh ginger root, peeled and chopped
1/2 fresh jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
Dash of cinnamon
1 tablespoon (15mL) fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)

Yield: Serves: 6 – Prep time: 10 minutes – Cook time: 25 minutes.



Heat 1 tablespoon (15mL) butter in large skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle pork medallions with salt. Add pork medallions to pan and cook 5-6 minutes per side or until pork is slightly pink. Place pork on serving plate and keep warm.

Brew Bigelow Constant Comment® tea in hot water; allow to steep for 10 minutes. Discard the tea bags, squeezing to extract as much liquid as possible.

Melt remaining butter in same skillet, add red bell peppers and cook about 3 minutes or until crisp tender. Reduce heat to low, add pineapple, reserved juice, Constant Comment® Tea, ginger root, jalapeno pepper and cinnamon. Simmer until liquid is reduced to half.

To serve, spoon pineapple mixture over cooked pork pieces, sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.

    Hi David,

    Who would have thought that I’d come across a dinner recipe on a tea blog? I am glad I did though!

    The picture looks absolutely amazing and the best part is probably that it only takes 25 minutes to make.

    I think it will go great with some rice on the side.

    I think the oranges from the tea is a great addition. I’ve never cooked with tea before, so it will be very interesting to try.

    Would you recommend this recipe with any of your other teas?
