Grilled Pork with Onion & Pepper Relish
Servings: 4 Prep 15 mins Chill 2 hrs Cook 35 mins


  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, halved and seeded
  • 2 teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Make It

1. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper, the garlic and 1 tablespoon of the rosemary. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.

2. Prepare a charcoal grill with medium-hot coals or heat a gas grill to medium-high. Coat the grill rack with nonstick cooking spray for grilling. Brush onion and peppers with 2 teaspoons of the oil and grill, turning often, for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly charred and crisp-tender. Cool vegetables slightly and chop.

3. Whisk vinegar, honey, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, remaining 2 teaspoons rosemary and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt in a large bowl. Whisk in remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add chopped onions and peppers. Set aside.

4. Sprinkle pork with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and grill, turning often, 20 to 25 minutes or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve pork with relish.
