Here’s another elegant but easy pork
It’s always one of my favorite dinners to
prepare. There’s no waste and it’s the
perfect size for the two of us or a small family.
There are so many ways to cook it and it’s done
in less than 30 minutes. This one is so easy
because it only uses few simple ingredients
that you probably have in your pantry.
It will create a fast and fantastic
balsamic infused berry sauce.This sauce has a
delicious tang condiment for the cumin grilled
To serve: Slice the grilled tenderloin and
drizzle with the berry sauce sauce.
Rub tenderloin with olive oil and salt, pepper
and cumin. Let rest for 15-30 minutes. Grill,
covered just until done-about 16 minutes.
That keeps it moist and juicy-tender.
Prepare the berry
balsamic sauce. Keep warm.
Tonight I served it with acorn squash and a
green vegetable. It’s a pretty and colorful
combination that’s also healthy and on the table
in less than 30 minutes. For the squash I just
pierced it a few times with the tip of a paring
knife and microwaved for about 4-5 minutes
until tender. Then just cut it in half and scoop out
the seeds. To serve, add butter and season with
salt and pepper. So easy that way. The vegetable
was also just microwaved for a few minutes.
Keep this recipe on your list for fall menus.
Grilled Pork Tenderloin

1/4 t pepper
1/3 C berry preserves
(blackberry, boysenberry, raspberry)
2 T balsamic vinegar

Rub pork all over with olive oil and sprinkle
with the seasonings. Let rest for 15-30
minutes. Grill on a cover grill for 14-16
minutes, turning occasionally just until the
rareness is gone. It will continue to cook once
removed to a cutting board. Let rest for
5 minutes before slicing on an angle.
Meanwhile make the sauce in a small skillet.
Combine: preserves, vinegar, Worcestershire
sauce and a pinch of crushed red pepper.
Bring to a gentle boil for 2 minutes to
slightly thicken. Serve sauce over pork
and sprinkle with green onion.
