  • 1
    For the pork: Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Rub the pork with salt and pepper, and then sear the meat in a covered skillet over high heat with the oil. Cook until the sides are golden-brown; this will help seal in the juices.
  • 3
    Add the sliced garlic. When the garlic begins to turn golden, pour in the wine.
  • 4
    Let the liquid reduce and then cook in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • 5
    For the sauce: In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the diced onion and sauté for five minutes.
  • 6
    Add the red pepper, cook for 2 more minutes and set aside.
  • 7
    In a small pot, combine the lemon juice, water, sugar, chile, garlic and salt.
  • 8
    Bring to a boil and stir continuously until the sugar dissolves.
  • 9
    Add the mango along with the sautéed onions.
  • 10
    Reduce the heat and continue cooking until the sauce thickens (about 25 minutes).
  • 11
    Garnish with chopped cilantro.

Expert Tips

  • To check if the pork loin is ready, use a meat thermometer. The pork is medium done when the temperature reads 140 to 150°F.
  • If you prefer your meat well done, wait until the temperature reaches 160°F.
