Quick & Easy: Glazed Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple

I’m entirely grateful for Martha Stewart (and her team). Some folks think of MS and think, “Oh, that lady is far too fancy for me.”  Not so.  She offers the fancy but she also covers the practical recipes too.  I often gain inspiration from both of her magazines and her entertaining cookbooks. Her Cookies cookbook is just fabulous, and I’ve got her Cupcakes book on my wish list. But her cookbook that actually has given me the most bang for my buck is Great Food Fast. It’s divided seasonally, and literally everything that I’ve tried from this book has been fabulous and family-friendly. My latest find: Glazed Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple



We’re big on pork tenderloin in our house. It’s the one cut of pork that I make without making it dried out beyond repair. My meat thermometer is my friend with all meats. I have the fabulous sort that you can insert into the meat… and then it has a long cord attachment that allows you to leave the temperature gage box outside of the oven (and it beeps when it has reached the right temperature). Love it :)



Pineapple is fantastic enough when it’s grilled, but it’s also pretty tasty when broiled in this recipe. It’s a perfect complement to the pork.



The lightly glazed pork is served with a sweet & ginger-scented Asian sauce and the broiled slices of pineapple. A bit of pork with a bite of pineapple. YUMMM! Our family loved this for a quick and easy dinner.  P.S.  I’ll bet you could grill this too if the thought of turning on your oven is too much this summer.

    That’s actually one of her cookbooks that I don’t have, but will have to get it. We also love pork tenderloin and I’m always looking for different ways to cook it.

    Thanks!

    I LOVE this cookbook! The day I bought it, I curled up on the couch with the book and a bunch of post-it notes to mark which recipes I wanted to try. By the time I was done, I’d say 75% of the recipes were flagged! I’ve made a handful of them so far and everything has been wonderful!

    I need to get a nice meat thermometer like that – what brand is yours? I have that same cookbook and will have to go back and try this recipe, it looks like a great summer meal.

    I have the cupcake cookbook, and am having a terrible time figuring out which one to try first! So many gorgeous cupcakes and amazing flavors!

    I love pork tenderloin, I agree that it’s one of those cuts that stays pretty juicy, and it’s pretty good for you.

    Meat thermometer is your friend… that was great :)

    That looks wonderful. I’ve always been scared to try a tenderloin, for fear of drying it out. I need to get a thermometer

    Pineapple with pork is always a favorite here. Grilling does wonder to pineapple, too.

    I’m one of those women who thinks of Martha’s recipes as too fancy most of the time. I love the way your dish looks.

    What do you serve on the side with this? Rice?
