Basmati rice and black beans go well with this spicy pork tenderloin dish. The fig-and-chile glaze also works well brushed over chicken thighs.
1/2 cup fig preserves
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon chile paste with garlic
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Fresh chives, cut into 1-inch pieces (optional)
How to Make It
Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
Combine preserves, vinegar, chile paste, soy sauce, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, stirring with a whisk.
Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place pork on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 18 minutes or until thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink), turning occasionally and basting frequently with fig mixture. Garnish with fresh chives, if desired.
