Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Cook 3 mins Grill 38 mins Microwave 3 mins


  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard

Make It

1. Stir 1/3 cup of the preserves with the mustard and ketchup. Cut onion into 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Place toothpicks through slices . Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes.

2. Heat gas grill to medium-high or prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. Brush onion slices lightly with some of the flavored preserve mixture. Grill onion 3 minutes, turn and grill 2 more minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and set aside.

3. Grill pork 25 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove half of the flavored preserve mixture to a small bowl and set aside. Brush pork with the remaining mixture. Grill 5 to 8 more minutes, turning often, until an instant-read thermometer registers 155 degrees F.
