Craisins-Encrusted Pork Tenderloin

Makes 12 servings

3 cups (6 1.75-ounce packages) of Ocean Spray Craisins Trail Mix - Cranberry & Chocolate
2 cups (4 1.75-ounce packages) of Ocean Spray Craisins Trail Mix - Cranberry, Fruit & Nuts
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper (to taste)
2 2-pound whole pork tenderloins, cleaned
5.5-ounce can of Ocean Spray(r) Cranberry Juice Cocktail
4 tablespoons Ocean Spray(r) Jellied Cranberry Sauce
1 teaspoon beef base
1 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place all packages of trail mix into food processor and pulse until coarsely ground. Don't overprocess. In ovenproof 13-x-9-inch pan, drizzle olive oil and place pork tenderloin in pan. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Rub trail mix mixture into tenderloins, covering entire pork loins, reserving 4 tablespoons of trail mix for sauce. Place tenderloins into a preheated oven and cook 30 minutes, or until center reaches 155 to 160 degrees F. While tenderloin cooks, into medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, pour the can of cranberry juice, and reduce by half. Add 4 tablespoons cranberry sauce and whisk mixture. Add the reserved 4 tablespoons of trail mix mixture and continue to stir. Add teaspoon of beef base and cup of heavy cream. Cook until sauce thickens. Let simmer over low heat until ready to use. Add salt and pepper to taste, if desired. When pork is fully cooked, remove from oven and pan. Slice into 1 inch thick medallions. Top with sauce and serve. Garnish as desired.
