Preheat oven to 350. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the tenderloin on all sides. Place the pork in a 9x13 baking dish. Add the onions to the skillet and cook over medium heat until translucent. Add the coconut milk, papaya, raisins, pineapple and spices and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and simmer for an additional minute. Pour over the tenderloin and place in the oven. Roast at 350 for 45 minutes. Let rest before carving.
