Here’s another elegant but easy pork
tenderloin recipes.
 It’s always one of my favorite dinners to
prepare. There’s no waste and it’s the
perfect size for the two of us or a small family.
There are so many ways to cook it and it’s done
in less than 30 minutes. This one is so easy
 because it only uses few simple ingredients
that you probably have in your pantry.
It will create a fast and fantastic 

balsamic infused berry sauce.This sauce has a 

delicious tang condiment for the cumin grilled 

pork tenderloin.

To serve: Slice the grilled tenderloin and
 drizzle with the berry sauce sauce.

Rub tenderloin with olive oil and salt, pepper
and cumin. Let rest for 15-30 minutes. Grill,
 covered just until done-about 16 minutes.
That keeps it moist and juicy-tender.
 Prepare the berry
balsamic sauce. Keep warm.

Tonight I served it with acorn squash and a 

green vegetable. It’s a  pretty and colorful 

combination that’s also healthy and on the table

 in less than 30 minutes. For the squash I just 

pierced it a few times with the tip of a paring

 knife and microwaved for about 4-5 minutes 

until tender. Then just cut it in half and scoop out 

the seeds. To serve, add butter and season with 

salt and pepper. So easy that way. The vegetable

 was also just microwaved for a few minutes.
Keep this recipe on your list for fall menus.
