Blueberry Balsamic Pork Tenderloin


  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons water


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 by 13-inch baking dish. Combine the rub ingredients and rub onto 2 pounds of pork. Place pork in dish. Set aside.

Combine the glaze ingredients in saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Pour the blueberry sauce over the meat.*

Bake uncovered in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes – until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. Let the pork rest 3-5 minutes before serving.

*Cooking the meat in the blueberry sauce will give it a purple stain when it’s removed from the oven.
