Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Cherry Salsa

THANKS TO SMITHFIELD MARINATED FRESH PORK FOR SPONSORING THIS POST (AND TO MY READERS WHO HELP ME SUPPORT THE BRANDS I LOVE)!

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Cherry Salsa

I didn’t think I could love pork more than I already do, and then along came this easy Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Cherry Salsa. I love all the recipes that I post but this one really stands out.

I say easy because it’s a complete, healthy meal that comes together in just 30 minutes. Because it’s so quick and easy, it’s a great choice for a weeknight yet is sophisticated enough that it’ll easily work for a dinner party.

It will feed four adults and I guarantee there won’t be a bite left!

Of course, much of the flavor comes from starting with Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork.

Slow-marinated and perfectly seasoned, Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is available in an assortment of mouthwatering flavors, such as Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper, Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie, or Hardwood Smoked Bacon & Cracked Black Pepper. Their pork is the go-to for a delicious, hassle-free dinner that’s ready in about 30 minutes or less!

With the prep work already done, we simply grill, roast, sauté, or slow-cook it for a meal that’s perfect for any night of the week. It’s also available in a wide variety of fresh cuts, including pork roasts, loin filets, sirloins, pork chops and tenderloins, and can be sliced or cubed for even faster cooking.

This recipe starts with the Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin; the flavors go perfectly with the Roasted Cherry Salsa. And this salsa?? It’s FABULOUS, if I do say so myself!

I add some chipotle pepper for a smoky flavor to balance out the sweet cherries. It’s also great served with tortilla chips (and I’ll often skip the roasting step when serving it this way; I simply allow it some time for the flavors to meld before serving). But you’ll love it with the pork so much that you’ll be making this easy dish every week!
