Jerk seasoning brings the heat in this pork tenderloin recipe while the sweet blackberry sauce keeps the flavor from getting too over the top.

Ingredients

  • 2 (3/4-lb.) pork tenderloins
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup seedless blackberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons rum or orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

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 tenderloins with oil, and rub with seasoning and salt.

  2. Grill tenderloins, covered with grill lid, 10 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 155°. Remove from grill, and let stand 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk together blackberry preserves and next 4 ingredients in a small saucepan, and cook over low heat, whisking constantly, 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

  4. Cut pork diagonally into thin slices, and arrange on a serving platter; drizzle with warm sauce.
