Roasted Pork with Honeyed Grape Sauce

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork and 1/4 cup sauce)
A salty-sweet sauce is a rich match for pan-roasted pork. Serve this dish with roasted red onions and mashed sweet potatoes. You can use green grapes, but the sauce won't be as rich, or as pretty.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/3 cup chopped shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped seedless red grapes
  • 2 tablespoons tamari sauce or soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • Dash of five-spice powder
  • 1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.

  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add grapes and next 4 ingredients (grapes through five-spice powder). Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Place grape mixture in a blender; process until smooth.
