Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Blackberry Sauce Recipe

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Blackberry Sauce


The sweet secret to this fresh take on pork tenderloin is all about the sauce: a sophisticated balance of blackberry and spices.


  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 ½ teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 (1 1/4 pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed of fat
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 large shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 cups Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 3 cups blackberries
  • 2 tablespoons blackberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Mix vinegar, sugar, salt, paprika, mustard, and pepper together; marinate pork in the mixture for up to 4 hours.
  2. Heat a medium saucepan over high heat and add olive oil. Stir in garlic, shallots, carrot, and celery; reduce heat to medium-high and saute until vegetables begin to brown and caramelize, about 5 minutes. Add Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon to deglaze the pan, stirring well.
  3. Stir in stock, blackberries, jam, and balsamic vinegar. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking until the liquid is reduced by half, about 30 minutes.
  4. Strain sauce and return to pan. Bring sauce to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium. Cook until sauce is reduced by half and thickened, about 5 minutes more. Season to taste with espresso, salt, and pepper.
  5. Heat grill to medium heat. Brush the pork with 2 tablespoons olive oil and place on grill. Cook for about 15 minutes, turning each side 90 degrees to make a crosshatch pattern. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 150 to 155 degrees F.
  6. Transfer pork to cutting board and let rest 8 to 10 minutes. Slice and serve with blackberry sauce.
