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
