RASPBERRY CHIPOTLE GRILLED PORK TENDERLOIN — Pork tenderloin, cooked on the grill and smothered in a sweet and spicy raspberry chipotle sauce.
Pork tenderloin is a great cut of meat for grilling. It’s the perfect size for feeding a family, but not so big that it takes a long time to cook.
Add some sweet and spicy raspberry chipotle barbecue sauce and this a perfect recipe for grilling any time.
If you’ve never cooked with canned chipotles in adobo before, be warned that they are pretty spicy, so you don’t need a lot to add some great smoky heat to your sauce.
But don’t worry, you can freeze any remaining chipotle peppers in zip top bags. I usually portion out two to a bag, then pull them out as needed for cooking.
The sauce is great on grilled chicken too! Just add a nice green salad and you’ve got the perfect summer dinner in about 30 minutes!Print
Pork tenderloin, cooked on the grill and smothered in a sweet and spicy raspberry chipotle sauce.
For the pork:
- 1 (1.5 lb. pound) pork tenderloin
- 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- Salt and pepper
For the Raspberry Chipotle Sauce:
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 1/3 cup raspberry preserves
- 2 tablespoons mustard
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped chipotle in adobo (from a can)
- Oil the grates of an outdoor grill and preheat to high heat. Season pork tenderloin with rosemary, thyme and salt and pepper.
- In a medium bowl, stir together barbecue sauce, raspberry preserves, mustard and chopped chipotle in adobo (extra chipotles can be frozen in zip-top bags for later). Remove one cup of sauce and set aside.
- Place pork tenderloin on preheated grill and baste with remaining sauce. Close the lid and cook for 7 minutes. Turn the pork over and baste again. Close the lid and cook for an additional 6 minutes. Turn the barbecue off, and leave the pork on the grill with the lid off for an additional 5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 150 degrees.
- Let pork stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with reserved sauce.
