Home » 300+ Entree Recipes » Grilled Pork with Plum Sauce~

On a recent trip to northern Michigan, I found the elusive plum jam I needed for my first attempt at rugelach. A girlfriend bought some, too, but hers was for a favorite pork recipe from our local Junior League cookbook, Winners. It received high praise from her dinner guests, so I had to try it. Definitely a winner!!! You can also make it with a pork loin roast and roast it in a 325º oven, spreading the sauce on during the last half hour of cooking.

Grilled Pork with Plum Sauce…adapted from Winners cookbook (Jr. League of Indpls)

3 pork tenderloins
2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon ground sage

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons olive oil

Plum Sauce:
1/2 cup plum jam
1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons soy
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Pinch of allspice

Combine garlic, sage, pepper, salt and olive oil. Rub mixture over pork. Park in refrigerator for a couple hours or longer to let flavors penetrate meat.

Grill to desired temperature…make sauce while meat is cooking.

Combine all sauce ingredients and bring to boil. Reduce heat and cook for 2 minutes. Brush on pork during last few minutes of grilling . Serve remainder of sauce at the table. You may double sauce amounts if desired.

  1. Thanks, Karen…I was so happy when Penzey’s finally came to Indianapolis. Now just a few minutes drive to stock up 🙂

  2. Liz, your photo styling is excellent. For the rugelach, try looking for lekvar; this is a plum jammy sauce/butter used in Eastern European baking.

  3. Thanks for the hint, Carole (I’m always amazed by your wealth of knowledge!). And thank you for the compliment 🙂 Do you think Bill would mind if I set up some professional lighting in my kitchen??? Maybe 2011 will be the year without the shadow!
