Grape Jelly & Sriracha Pork Tenderloin

pork1
I had never tried making pork tenderloin before giving this recipe a whirl and I can say for a fact that I will be making it again … and again … and again.  It was awesome!

You’re probably thinking “Grape jelly & sriracha?  Is this girl nuts?” and I don’t blame you, because I thought the combo was a bit weird as well.  But since I was feeling adventurous and had all of the ingredients in my pantry, I thought “Ah, what the heck?!”  Well, am I ever glad I tested it out, because it was DELISH.  The flavour combo was really different and super yummy.  And the recipe itself was so easy to throw together and tasted like I spent hours slaving over dinner.  My husband even went so far as to say that it tasted just as good – and if not better – than anything he had ever ordered in a restaurant.  Whoohooo!

Here’s what you’ll need to make Grape Jelly & Sriracha Pork Tenderloin…

Now for the Worcestershire sauce …
pork12
And sriracha …
pork11
Whisk everything together (I ended up having to transfer the mixture to a bigger measuring cup) …

Pour half of the mixture into the Ziploc bag, covering the pork tenderloin …

Squeeze all of the excess air out of the bag and place it in the fridge for an hour or overnight to marinate …

Place pork tenderloin on a foil lined tray and bake for 20 minutes at 500° (or until it reaches an internal temperature of 160°).  You can also do it on the BBQ if you’d prefer, which I may try next time for a change …

Remove the pork tenderloin from the oven once it’s done cooking and wrap it with aluminum foil to rest for a few minutes …
