Pork Tenderloin with Honey Butter Sear & Orange-Date Relish


  • 2-pound pork tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • For the relish:
  • 2 oranges, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 cup pitted dates, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat grill to 400-450F. (Or preheat oven to 425F).
  2. To prepare the relish, mix all relish ingredients in a bowl and chill until ready to serve. This can be done up to 4 hours in advance.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Season pork by rubbing honey, salt, pepper and coriander over it. Add pork to skillet and cook, turning occasionally, for 3-4 minutes or until all sides are slightly browned.
  4. Grill (or roast) over indirect heat for 40 minutes or until pork is cooked through, turning half way. Transfer pork to a cutting board and let rest for 3 minutes, then slice.
  5. Top with relish and serve.
