Cherry Balsamic Pork
Original Recipe has Thyme-Roasted Potatoes and Broccoli
- 1 Shallot
- 24 oz Pork Tenderloin
- 10 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 TBSP Cherry Preserves
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 TBSP Butter
- 2 TBSP Water
1. Preheat and Prep: Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Halve, peel, and thinly slice shallot
2. Cook Pork: Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season pork all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook, turning occasionally, until browned all over, 6-5 minutes. Transfer to another baking sheet and let roast in over to desired doneness, 20-30 minutes.
3. Make Glaze: Lower heat under pan used for pork to medium and add shallot and a drizzle of oil. Cook, tossing until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Pour in vinegar and let simmer until reduced by half. Stir in 2 TBSP Cherry Preserves and 2 TBSP water. Season with salt, pepper, and up to 1 tsp sugar. Remove pan from heat and add 2 TBSP butter, stirring to melt.
4. Glaze Pork and Serve: After pork is done roasting, return pan with glaze to medium heat. Add pork and turn to coat in glaze. Hold pork over pan, letting excess glaze drip off, then transfer to a cutting board. Let rest 1-2 minutes, then slice. Divide between plates and drizzle with remaining glaze.
