This Peach BBQ Pork Tenderloin recipe makes tasty use of juicy summer peaches. The peach BBQ sauce is magical with tender grilled pork tenderloin.
Why, oh why is there only one little month of you left? How could the sassy calendar be claiming August already?
I mean, I still have to make it over to the best ice cream joint before they close down for the cold seasons here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Shedding a silent small tear just thinking about no more java chunk cones for 8 months straight.
My inbox is inundated with back-to-school info and good ‘ol Google Calendar here is getting overwhelmed.
Every store is all about summer clearance and backpacks and mountains of Crayola. Target, I’m talking about you.
Summer, you’re my favorite season in all the world and I’m not letting you go that easily. So. We’re gonna throw open the windows wide [unless there’s lightening] and wear all the flip flops to all the places at all times.
And we’re firing up the grill for as long as we can. Say hi to this tender, succulent Peach BBQ Pork Tenderloin…
How to make Peach BBQ Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin is known for its supremely lean yet tender qualities. It’s commonly showcased as a quick and easy roast, as in this Sheet Pan Roast Pork Tenderloin with Potatoes.
During summer months, pork tenderloin is a fantastic grill option. It quickly cooks up on a grill in about 12 minutes with gorgeous charred exterior and super tender interior. We sprinkle let the tenderloins marinade in the peach BBQ sauce for a couple of hours and then do the baste ‘n grill. The key is to cook until thickest part registers 145F and not more; it will continue to cook a bit as it rests. You don’t want to overcook and forfeit tenderness.
The peach BBQ sauce is where all the flavors are at with this pork tenderloin dish. During warmer months, nab those fresh ripe peaches; it’s also a great way to use up those peaches in the fridge that need to be eaten.
The fresh peach BBQ sauce consists of ripe peaches, dijon mustard, honey, ketchup, and salt/pepper. Just a few ingredients keeps things simple, sweet, and magically delicious.
