BBQ Pork Tenderloin

BBQ Pork Tenderloin



  • 1 lb pork tenderloin
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup ketchup-style chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp. cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. hot sauce such as Tabasco
  • 1 cup water


  1. Trim pork of excess fat and silver skin, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Cut each slice into 3 strips. Cook onion in oil in a 4-quart heavy pot over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add ketchup, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, hot sauce, and water and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add pork and simmer, covered, until pork is cooked through and tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer pork with a slotted spoon to a bowl and cover to keep warm. Boil remaining sauce, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Pour sauce over pork.
