River Driver’s Maine Maple Syrup and BBQ Sauce Marinated Pork Tenderloin with Gorgonzola Scalloped Potatoes and Apple Cider Reduction 

*** Serves 6-8 People ***


3 whole peeled pork tenderloin

1 cup Maine maple syrup

cup BBQ sauce

1 tablespoon garlic, minced

1 tablespoon shallot, chopped fine

Pinch of salt

2 qts apple cider


1. Mix BBQ sauce,maple syrup, garlic, shallots and salt. Then pour over thepork and rub in. Cover and refrigerateuntil ready to cook. You can marinate the pork a day in advance for even better flavor.

2. Place pork on a hot grill and brown on all sides. When browned, put pork on a dish then place in a 375 oven for about 8-10 minutes or until pork is medium/medium-rare. Of course, cook longer if you want it well done. Pork will be more moist if cooked to medium/medium-rare.

3. Place apple cider in heavy bottom pot, andplace on low to medium heat. Simmer andreduceby a half to a third until it becomes a thick consistency, enough to coat the pan. This will takeapproximately 30-40 minutes, so it may be a good idea to make ahead of time.
