Peach Pepper + Ginger Glazed Pork Tenderloin
1-2 Pork Tenderloin (Columbia Meats SC Certified)
3 – 6 tablespoons Sallie’s Greatest Peach Pepper +Ginger Jam (Sallie’s Greatest)
Rub seasoning for pork (Smokin Cole’s, Blue Moon Cajun, Smokey Bair’s)
Season tenderloin with a rub for pork. Heat grill pan to medium heat. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in pan until hot but not smoking. Put tenderloin in hot pan and cook on one side for about 8 – 10 minutes. Turn over and cook 8 – 10 minutes longer. After the meat is seared on both sides you can roll around in the pan to sear all sides. Cook until meat registers 155 degrees (15 -20 minutes). Then glaze the meat with the Peach Pepper + Ginger Jam rolling the meat around in the jam/pan juices for about 1 – 2 minutes. Let the meat rest about 10 minutes before slicing. Pour pan juices over the sliced meat.
Note: you can also cook this on your grill. Will need to have a pan to collect the juices when you get to the glazing part.
Peach Pepper + Ginger can also be used the same way with pork ribs. Delicious!
