Place on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 4 to 7 minutes on each side or until grill marks form and fruit turns easily. Transfer to cutting board; let stand 10 to 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Chop fruit, and set aside.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Traditional southern Jezebel sauce is an interesting combination of jarred pineapple preserves, apple jelly, horseradish, ground mustard and black pepper. Our version uses fresh pineapple and apple, plus Dijon, horseradish and pepper for a fun twist on the classic.
  • Tip 2
    Don’t skip the step of trimming the pork tenderloin. That membrane doesn’t cook away, and it prevents flavours and seasonings from getting to the meat. To remove slippery silverskin, run a knife underneath the shiny membrane, and slice to remove the silverskin while removing as little meat as possible.
