Yield Makes 4 servings
Easy side: Cook 2 Tbsp. olive oil; 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar; 1 garlic clove, pressed; and salt and pepper to taste in a small saucepan over medium-low heat 2 minutes or until bubbly. Toss mixture with 1 lb. haricots verts (tiny green beans), trimmed and blanched.

Ingredients

  • 1 (2-lb.) package pork tenderloins
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 (8-oz.) can pineapple tidbits in juice, drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup mango chutney
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

How to Make It

  1. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Remove silver skin from tenderloins, leaving a thin layer of fat. Brush pork with olive oil, and sprinkle with jerk seasoning.

  2. Grill pork, covered with grill lid, 10 to 12 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 145°. Remove from grill, and let stand 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, coarsely chop 1 cup blueberries. Toss together remaining whole blueberries, chopped berries, and next 7 ingredients. Slice pork, and serve with blueberry salsa.
