Sweet and Sassy Pork Tenderloin

As you know…..I’m not a huge meat eater, with the exception of chicken, turkey and seafood….the only other meat I like is pork!   Well NOT all pork, but some!   This pork tenderloin recipe is to die for! When I say it’s delicious, it’s an understatement. It’s so tender and has the perfect amount of sweet and spice (sassy)!  I got the recipe from my friend, Jen!  Thanks, Jen!!!  🙂    I know here in Jersey it’s hard to use a grill right now since most grills are under 2 feet of snow, but if you have access to your grill….or you can ice pick your way to it……DO IT!

The key is marinating it for long enough and cooking it perfectly. I can promise you, you will add this to the rotation. As for my kids….they LOVE it! 

 I always double or triple the marinade recipe so there is enough sauce to smother and dip!  You should definitely do the same!  This is also a perfect dinner idea if you are having company….well..because it’s that good and you will get rave reviews!  PROMISE!!!

SWEET AND SASSY PORK TENDERLOIN 

2 pounds pork tenderloin 

4 tablespoons brown sugar 

2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 

4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar 

2 tablespoon Spicy Brown Mustard 

2 cloves garlic, minced 

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes…if you want it more sassy, add more! 

2 teaspoon prepared horseradish 

Cut tenderloin into 1-1.5 inch thick pieces..and place in large bowl. I got about 8 pieces out of mine. 

Stir together sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mustard, garlic, red pepper flakes, and horseradish in bowl, until blended and pour over pork. 

Let marinate for at least 2 hours..I do it all day! 

Place the meat onto preheated grill (med/high heat). 

Grill until no longer pink in the center, approx 8 minutes per side. 

When finished, place pork on a plate, and allow to rest for 5 minutes. 

While meat is cooking bring the marinade to a boil on the stove, and simmer over medium heat, and stir until smooth. Pour sauce over sliced tenderloin to serve.

 Enjoy!!
