Recipe by Chef John
"When shopping for this recipe be sure to choose plums (or any other stone fruit) that are fairly firm so they keep their shape after roasting. You know that selfish jerk that has to feel-up every piece of fruit before deciding on one? This time, be that jerk."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

salt and ground black pepper to taste
red onion, sliced
fresh thyme sprigs, or more to taste
firm plums, pitted and each cut into 4 wedges
Followed the directions to the letter, and found the sauce to be a little diluted and bland. I added more balsamic and let it reduce which helped intensify the flavor, but I was expecting more from the sauce (and my plums were perfectly ripe and tasty). I'm wondering if mashing one of the plum wedges into the sauce or perhaps adding more thyme to it would add more flavor? You may want to start checking the pork temperature well before 20 minutes, because mine reached 145 degrees F at about 12 minutes (oven temps do vary). We enjoyed it, it was very moist and tender, and I definitely will make this again, but I will concentrate on improving the sauce (personal taste preference, I suppose).
Great recipe! My family loved it. Only issue I see with the recipe itself is that it never tells you to put the pan in the oven. Had I not watched the video I would have never known.
I have made this recipe many times. I also add more Balsamic to my sauce. I use a larger tenderloin and add more fruit. I have also made it with Apples, fantastic. Love it and it freezes well.
