Recipes: Grilled Pork Tenderloin Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Yield: 4 entrée or 8 side salads

Ingredients

Instructions

Place the dried cherries in a bowl. Pour in the bourbon and water. Cover with plastic wrap and let soak overnight. Strain the cherries and give them a rough chop.

Make the candied pecans. In a Lodge Logic cast iron skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the maple syrup and brown sugar. Whisk to dissolve sugar. Let boil and reduce by half. Add the pecans and stir to coat. Pour onto a parchment paper lined sheet pan to cool. When cooled, chop pecans.

Wash out the pan and return to low heat. Add about a tablespoon of olive oil, the sliced onion and a pinch of salt. Cook over low heat until onions are lightly browned, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. Keep the heat low.

Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 to 400ºF, set up with GrillGrates. Trim silver skin from the pork tenderloin. Combine the House of Q Slow Smoke Gold Mustard Slather and maple syrup. Inject the tenderloin all over with the mixture. Wipe the excess injection from the surface of the tenderloin. Apply the Kosmos Q Killer Bee Honey Chipotle Rub. Grill the tenderloin on all sides until the internal temperature reaches 140ºF. Remove from the cooker. Rest 10 minutes then dice the pork.

Whisk together all ingredients for the balsamic vinaigrette. In a large bowl, toss the mixed greens with the vinaigrette to coat the leaves. Mix in the pork, caramelized onions, bourbon cherries and candied pecans.
