Grilled Apple Butter Pork Tenderloin

Weeknights seem to constantly be crazy in my house. No matter how much I manage to prep on the weekend, the hustle around getting home, getting dinner on the table, the kids bathed and ready for bed always feels like a bit of a frenzy to me. Someone always wants or needs help with something, someone is upset about something (I won’t pick them up, they can’t have fruit snacks for dinner, etc), I can’t remember what I was doing…. it’s always something.

While our slow cooker helps make dinner times easier, our other go-to is the grill. When in a pinch, it takes only a minute to season a piece of meat with salt and pepper or use a store-bought rub or marinade. This recipe increases my prep time by only a few minutes – the apple butter BBQ sauce comes together in under 5 minutes and makes for a sweet, flavorful dinner in under 30 minutes. This recipe also rocks because it uses minimal dishes – two small bowls for the apple butter sauce and one large Pyrex (isn’t the one above, from their Watercolor collection gorgeous?) that I use for prep and after a quick wash, for serving. #Winning

Grilled Apple Butter Pork Tenderloin

Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. homemade or store-bought apple butter
  • 2 1/2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 3 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. molasses
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder or minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. sriracha
  • 2 lb. pork tenderloin
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbs. minced chives (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine apple butter, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, molasses, garlic, and sriracha. Whisk gently with a fork. Set about 1/3 of the mixture aside.
  2. Heat grill on a medium setting. While grill is preheating, trim extra fat from pork tenderloin. Place in a large glass baking dish (i.e. a large rectangular Pyrex) and sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Keeping 1/3 of the sauce on the side, brush pork tenderloin with some of the remaining.
  3. Place pork on hot grill. Grill for 10 minutes, apply more sauce and flip. Apply additional sauce as needed, cooking until the pork reaches 150F in the thickest part.
  4. Remove pork tenderloin from grill and transfer to a clean Pyrex or cutting board. Allow to rest for 5 minutes, covered with foil.
  5. With a clean brush, brush pork with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with chives. Slice and serve hot.
