Recipe Summary

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Number of servings: 4


    • 1 lb pork tenderloin
    • 1 Tbsp butter
    • 2 medium onions, sliced
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
    • 2 Tbsp sugar
    • 1/4 cup port wine or sweet sherry
    • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
    • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
    • 1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes


Preheat broiler. Broil pork, turning occasionally, until cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove to a platter; cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add onions, salt, and pepper; cook until onions are golden, about 10 minutes. Add sugar; cook until onions are caramelized, 3 minutes longer. Add port, balsamic vinegar, blueberries, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Remove from heat.

Thinly slice pork, and serve with sauce.
