Pork tenderloin is nothing spectacular unless it is paired with a glazed fruit and sauce. This dish offers a sweet and tangy sauce made from fresh cherries and balsamic vinegar.


  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • 1/3 cup bottled or homemade balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup canned chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup tart cherries, washed and pitted
  • 1/2 orange, juiced


  1. Prepare the grill on high heat.
  2. Sprinkle the pork loin with salt and pepper and then cover in aluminum foil to make a tent over the loin. Grill tenderloin for 12 per side.
  3. At the same time, melt the butter over medium heat in a sauté pan. Add the shallot and sauté for 1 minute, shallot will be soft.
  4. Pour the chicken broth and balsamic vinaigrette into to the pan and then add the cherries and a sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil and cook until sauce is slightly reduced, about 7 minutes.
  5. Place the pork on a serving dish and pour over the cherry sauce.
