SMUCKER'S® Cherry Preserves

We loved this. I didn't have any cherry preserves so I just used frozen mixed berries and boiled them down til they were thick, added sweetener and used that instead of preserves.
This recipe was wonderful. I used a little over 5 lbs of tenderloin, and there was plenty of marinade to coat. I did think the consistency of the marinade was quite thick, so I added about 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar to thin. We prepared the tenderloin on the grill, sliced, and plated for the guests with a drizzle of the sauce. To die for! The spicy bite of the pork and the sweetness of the cherry sauce works so well, and makes a very pretty plate. I passed the reserved sauce, but do let your guests know it's super sweet. I used Kroger brand cherry preserves, which had some nice, whole cherries in it. Very pretty. I made the sauce a day ahead, and whisked in the chilled butter after re-heating. Lovely dish, would be great for the holidays!
Rather than using Smucker's Cherry Preserves, I use a jar of sour cherries, a tablespoon of sugar, and corn starch to thicken. It makes the compote have a zestier flavour.
This is the first review I have ever done on this site, but I felt compelled because this recipe is SOOO GOOOOD!! The changes I made were out of necessity because of what was in the cupboard, not because I felt like the recipe needed them. I used pork chops, not tenderloin. In the marinade, I used olive oil (sorry Crisco) and didn't have any thyme so I just omitted it. When it was time to grill, our grill wouldn't start so I threw a drizzle of liquid smoke into the marinade. Then miraculously the grill started so mine were extra smoky but sooo good! In the compote I didn't have mushrooms so I left those out, I used black cherry preserves in the fridge (only about 9oz) and again no thyme. I decided to throw in a little fresh basil from the garden. This was FANTASTIC and so forgiving. Even with all my little changes it was great!
This was a nice meal. Tasty way to prepare pork.
Grilled the pork and it was delicious, even without the cherry compote. The compote complimented the flavors of the pork and it was a hit! I definitely will be making this again.
Very tasty. Didn't have the mushrooms, nor do I care for them, so left them out. Husband wouldn't eat the cherry compote, but I thought it was very good. Maybe could have gone with a little less thyme (maybe 1 tsp) Quick and easy, too. I think you could easily half the compote and still have plenty.
**DELICIOUS** My one peice of advice...start the cherry sauce way before you start the pork...I used porkchops. The sauce takes forever to reduce. I also added only 1 teaspoon of thyme to the cherry sauce thanks to the suggestion of another users review. Thanks user WENDY
