Total Time: 1 hour
Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 lb pork tenderloin


  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1–2 teaspoons fresh rosemary
  • 3 garlic cloves

Savory Strawberry Compote

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small shallot – finely chopped (2 Tbsp.)
  • 2 cups strawberries- small diced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • generous pinch salt and pepper
  • squeeze lemon juice- 1 teaspoon
  • Garnish: 1 cup diced strawberries, balsamic reduction or glaze, fresh rosemary sprigs


  1. Blend marinade ingredients together in a blender. Place loin and marinade in a large ziplock bag, or in a shallow baking dish, coating all sides. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

  2. In a small pot, heat oil over medium low heat, then add shallot. Stir and sauté until golden about 2-3 minutes. Add strawberries, wine, sugar, salt, pepper. Bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer on med-low heat until wine has reduced and strawberries have thickened, about 10 minutes. It should look like a loose jam. Add a squeeze of lemon. Set aside.
  3. Pre-heat grill on high heat.
  4. Remove loin from marinade and pour extra marinade into a small pot. Boil for one minute, or until it has darkened — you will use this cooked marinade to baste the loin whilst on the grill.
  5. Once the grill is hot, scrape it clean. Turn to medium-high and place pork loin directly on the grill, and cook for 12 minutes total, tuning and basting every 3 minutes. Cover in-between turns. Check temperature. Continue cooking on grill , lowering heat if necessary just until loin reaches 140 F at thickest point. Let rest 5-10 minutes.
  6. When ready to serve, slice loin into ¾ inch slices, then plate, topping with compote (or place pork over the compote).
  7. Garnish with fresh diced strawberry, rosemary sprigs and balsamic reduction.
