  • Lightly oil grate. Season meat with salt and pepper, and place on grill. Cook for 15 to 25 minutes, or to desired doneness, turning meat as necessary to cook evenly. Remove from grill, and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook shallots and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in grapes, soy sauce, honey, ginger, and five-spice powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

  • Process cooled sauce until smooth in a blender or food processor. Serve over sliced tenderloin.

Delicious! Wish I had more sauce may double it next time. Everyone loved it including the kids (12 and 5) but I served their sauce on the side. Such an different and enjoyable way to serve pork tenderloin. I didn't have fresh gingeroot so I substituted crystalized ginger. Served it with roasted red potatoes. Plan on making this for guests.

This was not one of my favorite recipes.The meat turned out well but I was not impressed with the sauce. My kids wouldn't eat it and my husband thought it was alright. Maybe I am not use to the taste of the 5 spice. Read More

Sorry I didn't much care for the 5-spice flavor in this recipe. I prefer cooking pork tenderloin with wine instead. Read More

I loved this recipe! My guests raved about it and ate seconds and thirds. The only change I made was to sear meat first and bake in 400 deg oven for 25 mins. Used instant read thermometer to check when 145 deg internally removed from oven and let set for 10 15 mins loosly covered with foil. Made sauce during this resting time. Read More

This grape sauce is AMAZING!!! It is such a simple way to dress up a tenderloin. I made it for my parents and company and it was a big hit! I am making it again tomorrow and will use it again and again! Read More

I agree with the comments about 5 spice pdr. Leave it out if you don't like it but if you do this is a delicious recipe just as it is. I used green grapes that were past their prime. It is a great way to use up grapes that aren't crisp anymore. The pork and sauce are very good together. This is a "make again" according to my family. Read More
