Pork Tenderloin in Mustard Marinade with Cherry Compote


This unusual but delicious recipe starts with a tangy mustard marinade finished with a sweet cherry-flavored compote.

6 servings


  • 1 (1 1/2 pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed

  • 6 sprigs fresh rosemary, for garnish

Mustard Marinade:

  • ½ cup CRISCO® Oil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed

Cherry Compote:

  • ½ small red onion

  • ¼ cup shiitake mushrooms, roughly chopped

  • 1 tablespoon CRISCO® Oil

  • 1 cup beef broth

  • 1 (18 ounce) jar SMUCKER'S® Cherry Preserves

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried thyme

  • 3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into pieces


  1. Pork Tenderloin in Mustard Marinade: Whisk together CRISCO® Oil and garlic in a medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients and whisk well.

  2. Marinate pork tenderloin in refrigerator for 4 hours to overnight.

  3. Grill or broil tenderloin until medium, about 8 -10 minutes. Slice on bias into 1/4-inch pieces.

  4. Cherry Compote: Saute red onions and shitake mushrooms in CRISCO® Oil until lightly browned, about 3-5 minutes.

  5. Add beef broth; bring to a boil and continue cooking until liquid is reduced by about half.

  6. Reduce heat; add SMUCKER'S® Cherry Preserves and thyme. Return to a low boil and continue cooking until liquid is syrupy.

  7. Remove from heat and whisk in chilled butter, one piece at a time.

  8. Serve warm with the pork.


Compote may be made ahead and re-heated before serving. To make ahead, prepare as directed, but add butter at time of re-heating.
