Honey Balsamic Pork Tenderloin ~ tender, juicy, flavorful pork goes from stove to table in just 20 minutes for a delicious, easy, any night meal.

I love a good fake-out meal; ones that look and taste like you’ve spent hours on them, but can be whipped up quickly. This juicy, tender Honey Balsamic Pork Tenderloin is the ticket we need for this time of year when we’re all short on time because it goes from stove to table in just 20 minutes, less time than it takes to have a pizza delivered, but tastes better. Way, way better.

That’s why it seemed like the perfect time to update the photos and reshare this recipe. I’m not kidding one bit if you make it once, you’ll have it on repeat the whole year.

Grilled Teriyaki Rum Pork Kabobs ~ teriyaki-rum-citrus marinated pork skewered with fresh pineapple, red onions and peppers and grilled for an easy weeknight meal you can entertain with.

I have a thing for kabobs. You too? There’s no limit to what you can thread on a wooden or metal stick and the magic that happens when it’s grilled is almost indescribable.

Last week my local Meijer had pork tenderloin on sale buy one get one free. Who can resist a BOGO sale even though it’s usually just the two of us at the table these days. That’s why freezers were invented, right?

So I ignored my husband’s raised eyebrows when he saw me removing several pounds of pork from the shopping bags and zeroed in on how versatile pork is and how it’s often overlooked for more popular chicken.  A little teriyaki sauce, some rum ~ oh yes.I.did. ~ fresh pineapple and lime and we were well on our way to these Grilled Teriyaki Rum Pork Kabobs.

With Father’s Day coming, it dawned on me that most men I know love meat ~ especially if that meat has a bone it. Think chicken wings ~ and T-bone steaks. I don’t have proof, but I’m convinced it goes back to their caveman days. So today I have a recipe for bone-in Grilled Pork Chops with a homemade glaze the whole family will love. It’s really easy, but no one needs to know that and it’ll have you shining like a grilling rock star.
