Pork Tenderloin with Grilled Apple Disks

Pork Tenderloin with Grilled Apple Disks

We like to grill juicy, tender pork with a rich molasses and honey mixture. And nothing complements this pork tenderloin like grilled apple disks with cinnamon. Enjoy this decadent main dish with a light, crisp side any time of year, but we especially love to serve it in Fall.

Main Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pound lean pork tenderloin
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples (sliced horizontally into 1/2 inch disks)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high (450º-475º). In a small bowl whisk together honey, molasses, garlic and ginger. Set aside. 

Step 2

Place pork onto center of grill, close lid and cook for 15-20 minutes or until internal temperature of 145º is reached, turning tenderloin and brushing on honey mixture every 4 minutes. 

Step 3

On a cutting board, slice apples horizontally into ½-inch disks and sprinkle with cinnamon. During the last 4-5 minutes of cooking the pork, place apples on grill beside tenderloin and grill about 2 minutes per side or until they have good grill marks but are not overly soft. 

Step 4

Remove tenderloin, tent with aluminum foil and let rest 10 minutes (tenderloin should reach 155º before serving).

All recipe ingredients should be cooked to a safe internal temperature according to USDA guidelines. After preparing a recipe, please store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
