Prep: 15 minutes plus standing

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pork tenderloin (about 1-1/4 pounds)
Nonstick cooking spray
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

1.Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. In small oven-safe saucepot, whisk vinegar, ketchup, honey, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder.

Transfer pork to cutting board and tent loosely with aluminum foil; let stand 10 minutes.

3.Slice pork; serve sprinkled with chives and rosemary along with reserved BBQ sauce.

Dietitian’s Dish Tip(s):
> Lean pork tenderloin is an excellent protein source. Allow the meat to rest after grilling to retain juices and maintain tenderness. Opting for a homemade balsamic BBQ sauce can help control the sodium and sugar content.
