Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Citrus Blueberry Balsamic Sauce
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
2 c. frozen blueberries, thawed
1/2 c. cranberry juice
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
2 T. agave nectar
1 orange, zest and juiced
1 T. Herbs de Provence
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
1 pork tenderloin
1 pinch salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat grill over medium heat. For sauce combine blueberries and juice in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into a medium sauce pan and add remaining ingredients. Stir to blend well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low boil and simmer until it reduces by half and thickens, about 30 minutes.
In the meantime generously season pork tenderloin with salt and pepper and grill just until cooked through, turning often for even grilling, about 15 minutes total. Remove from grill and let rest about 5 minutes for juices to redistribute throughout loin. Slice and top with blueberry sauce.
