  • 1 1/2 - 2 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup  jam (Triple Berry used but any red fruit jam is good)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha (or more to taste)
  • tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 2 whole cloves of garlic


  • Whisk all the marinade ingredients together, reserving 1/4 cup of the marinade for the glaze. Pour the rest of the marinade into a large ziplock bag and add the whole pork tenderloin.
  • Roll the tenderloin in the marinade to coat it. 
  • In a large skillet over medium/medium-high heat, drizzle in the olive oil and once it's hot, add the whole tenderloin to the skillet browning it on all sides and ends. Note: if the tenderloin doesn’t fit in the skillet, you can cut it in half to fit.
  • Once the tenderloin is browned, remove it from the skillet and slice into 1" thick medallions.
  • Lower the heat to medium, return the medallions to the skillet, season with salt and pepper and cook 1 1/2 minutes per side.
  • Remove the medallions from the skillet and tent with aluminum foil. Pour the reserved marinade into the skillet and cook over low-medium heat 5 minutes or until it reduces and thickens into a glaze.
  • Brush the sauce over the top.
