As the remnants of Hurricane Cristobal pass by our shores and dump a torrent of rain on us today here in Newfoundland, the weekend promises to offer better opportunity for late summer grilling and I recommend this balsamic peach pork tenderloin get added to your menu. We made this delicious dish just the other night and thought we would have leftovers the next day. I was even planning a recipe idea for the leftover pork tenderloin but such was not to be…we cleaned the platter!

Grilled Balsamic Peach Pork TenderloinMy love for summer peaches is well documented here on Rock Recipes as the search results for “peach” easily demonstrates. There are quite a number of fantastic desserts and even some savory recipes like Peach and Basil Salsa or Cranberry Peach Chutney.

This time the savory peach recipes get one more addition with this cinnamon spice rubbed grilled pork tenderloin and peaches which are simply marinated in black pepper and balsamic vinegar. It is a wonderful combination of flavors that everyone at our dinner table loved.

 Tenderloin is often an underused cut of pork for quick and easy dinners, even when grilling. We slice the pork tenderloin into medallions all the time to use in stir fried meals but a whole tenderloin can be grilled in as little as 15 minutes depending on the size. One of my tips for grilling is to fold the tapered end of the tenderloin and tie it with butcher string to make it a consistent thickness and ensure more even cooking.

All of a sudden, I can’t copy and past your great recipes to Windows, and then to my appropriate flash drive, i.e. Entrees, Appetizers, deserts, etc,. Do you know why? Thanks. PS. Married to a girl from Red Bay, Labrador.

Could this be roasted in the oven?

Delicious. New twist using peaches rather than apples. My three children asked for more. High Five! Thanks for the recipe.

Barry. This looks delicious. I am going to make it for the bbq. I’m interested in what you would serve this with that would accompany the sweetness of the meat? Thanks !
