Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Gingered Jezebel Sauce

  • Yield 6 servings

Juicy pork, marinated in brown sugar and soy sauce, drizzled with pineapple and apple jelly jezebel sauce.



Marinade and meat:
1/2 cup light soy sauce
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons sherry (optional)
3 pounds pork tenderloin
fresh rosemary sprigs (optional)
Jezebel sauce:
2/3 cup pineapple preserves
1/3 cup apple jelly
1 to 2 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger


  1. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, onions and sherry in a shallow dish or large plastic zip-top bag.  Add pork and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Prepare sauce while the pork marinates.  Microwave preserves and jelly until melted.  Stir in horseradish and ginger.
  3. Remove meat from dish and discard marinade.  Grill pork, with lid closed, over medium-high heat (350F to 400F) for 25 minutes, or until internal temperatures reaches 155F.  Turn once, basting with 1/2 cup sauce.  Grill 5 to 10 minutes longer, until temperature reaches 160F.  Slice and serve with the remaining sauce and rosemary sprigs.
