Lean pork tenderloin with a sweet and tangy glaze, and super easy to make!

This is a great, quick and easy pork tenderloin recipe topped with a sweet & tangy glaze. It’s super simple to make with just a few ingredients which is perfect for weeknight cooking.

I’m pretty obsessed with Trader Joe’s Fig Butter and combined it with some balsamic vinegar to create this glaze. Then I roasted it in the oven for about 25 minutes and served it with these awesome brussels sprouts. If you can’t find fig butter, any fruit butter such as apple butter would work great.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Season the pork with salt and garlic powder and place on a baking pan. Combine the vinegar and fig butter and generously brush it all over the pork.

Roast until the center of the pork reaches 145°F with a meat thermometer, about 25 to 30 minutes depending on the size of your pork and your oven. Let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces. Top with parsley if desired.

  1. Wow! Perfect for a weeknight meal.
    So easy and delicious. Paired with ST savory smashed sweet potatoes, which were also delish. Thanks Gina, you are always my #1 go to for meal ideas!

  2. While on Whole 30, I used date paste instead of fig jam and it turned out great!  Compliments from everyone at the table, even those not in the program. I served it at Christmas and using it again fir Easter. 

  3. Delicious! I didn’t have any fig, but I mixed balsamic vinegar and seedless jam (based on ideas from other reviews), and it turned out perfectly! I will be using this recipe again!

  4. Soooo goood! Used up some of the fig jam I had left over for the holidays 
    Super easy too, love how you don’t have to marinate the pork for hours before. I’m a last minute person so it was great I had everything on hand. 

  5. Delicious! Didn’t have fig butter, so I used 2 figs from my jar of farmer’s market fig preserves. Spiced it up by using jalapeno white balsamic and some crushed red pepper.

  6. Made this today for the first time and it tastes amazing. It was a great hit with everyone and it will be in my recipe rotation from now on. I used the Trader Joe’s Fig Butter as suggested but when I bought it at TJ’s this morning I realized that naming it Fig Butter is a bit misleading as it is more like a Fig Jam or a Fig Compote. Great recipe and thank you Gina – you always have such a wealth of excellent recipes to suit all tastes.

  7. Outstanding! Very moist & so flavorful! Roasted at 375 for 40 min. Used Fig Preserves and Balsamic Vinegar, S&P and garlic powder. 

  8. This was delicious! So easy, and not dried out at all, which can be tricky with pork. I followed the recipe exactly and loved the flavor from the fig butter and balsamic vinegar combination. I cooked it at 375 convection for 35 minutes, and it was a huge hit. This will definitely become part of our rotation. Thank you!

    I found this recipe a while back and was impressed with the fig butter. I went to Trader Joe’s and purchased it. I was amazed with the outcome of using this and have decided that I need to keep it as a kitchen staple. The meat turned out with such a delicious flavor. I think everyone should give this recipe a try. I’m sure they will enjoy it.

  10. Love Gina.
    However, By not explaining how to make a fig butter or what to use as a substitute, she directs you to a specific vendor – Trader Joe’s. Gina’s recipe becomes an ad, not a recipe to make at home.
    No fryer? No problem. 
    No fig butter? …………..
    The recipe needs an addendum.

    1. Hi, Lauren! I thought finding fig butter (or preserves or jam) would be difficult and I really did not want to drive to Trader Joe’s, almost an hour away. I was so surprised to find fig butter at TJ Maxx. And Marshall’s. And Big Lots. And the Christmas Tree Shop. Recently, I’ve seen it at Kroger and Meijer! I live about an hour north of Detroit. Maybe it will be available near you soon!

      1. Hey, Lauren, I was just reading through some iif the comments and saw that a few others have used Apple butter and were very happy with the substitution. Hope that helps!😊

    2.  I just used apple butter since apple always works well with pork and it was an amazing recipe! Always will be my go to recipe for pork tenderloin now! 

    3. And some people will complain no matter what; she gets paid to recommend a certain brand and she discloses that information on every recipe she posts. Fig butter can be found in most grocery stores and if you read additional comments, there are plenty of substitutions to use.
