Caribbean Pork Tenderloin

I’m always looking for new ideas for pork tenderloins. They are quick and easy to cook, lean, and adapt very well to any flavor profiles you throw at them. I thought this fun twist using flavors inspired by the Caribbean Islands would be perfect for the summertime, and I was right!

A few months ago, during my last “stock-up” trip to Trader Joe’s, I picked up a couple of jars of their Mango-Ginger Chutney to keep in the pantry. I used a jar or that as a base for my glaze – then added fresh lime juice and zest, brown sugar, and a splash of rum to add some extra flavor and flair.

An extra punch of flavor also comes from the use of Jerk seasoning, which is used to season the pork before grilling. During the last few minutes on the grill, the tenderloins are brushed with the glaze then sliced and served with some alongside as well.

The flavors are fresh and wonderful, yet super simple and perfect for a weeknight meal. Another one for the recipe box, for sure!
