Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Molasses and Mustard by Epicurious.


Are you making this? 
.25 cup mild-flavored (light) molasses
3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar; divided
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons coarse-grained mustard
2 lb pork tenderloin

Original recipe makes 2 Servings



Whisk molasses, 2 tablespoons vinegar, and both mustard's in small bowl to blend. Place pork in heavy-duty resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over. Seal tightly and refrigerate 4 hours or the best is overnight.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Drain marinade into heavy small saucepan. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Grill pork until thermometer inserted into center registers 140-145°F, turning occasionally with tongs, about 20 minutes. Transfer pork to serving platter; let rest 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, add 1 tablespoon vinegar to pan with marinade and boil until thickened to sauce consistency, about 1 minute.

Cut pork crosswise on slight diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Arrange pork slices on platter; drizzle sauce over.

Serve on a bed of curry lime mashed butternut squash and haricot verts; grilled asparagus or grilled baby zucchini.


Don't over cook pork. I take it off at 135 and let it rest and it is best with slight pink in center. If you find it undercooked you can put pork slices in a 350 oven for 5-8 minutes. Do ahead: I do the squash ahead and then microwave it and I par cook 3 minutes and cold water shock the green beans; refrigerate and then heat up in a little butter and kosher salt when ready to serve in a hot skillet. Or make it easy and grill asparagus or baby zucchini on the grill when your pork is almost finished.
