Ingredients

  • 2 (3/4-lb.) pork tenderloins
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

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.
