1 pork tenderloin, well-trimmed, about 12 oz / 375 g

⅛ cup / 25 mL balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp / 15 mL honey

For the pork:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In small bowl, combine garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Rub mixture over all sides of tenderloin.
  3. In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sear tenderloin on all sides just until lightly browned, being careful not to burn garlic.

  2. Reduce heat to low. Coarsely mash strawberries with back of fork. Cook an additional 5-6 minutes, just until sauce begins to thicken.
  3. Remove saucepan from heat and allow mixture to cool slightly.
  4. Spoon warm sauce over sliced tenderloin. Serve immediately.
