A culinary journey with pork, herbs, and fruit…


1 pork tenderloin, trimmed of silver skin

Coarse Salt and black pepper

1 TBS olive oil

2 TBS butter

1 shallot, minced

Season the pork tenderloin with salt and pepper and rub with the olive oil. Prepare the grill and get to a medium-high heat, around 400 degrees. Grill the pork turning frequently for about 15 minutes, until a thermometer reads 140 degrees. Remove and let rest, loosely covered with foil. Heat the butter in a sauté pan over high heat. Add the shallot and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the white wine and cook down to 2 TBS. Add the chicken broth and cook down by ½. Add the jam, thyme and season with salt and pepper. Slice the pork and spoon the sauce over it.
