  • 1 cup MUSSELMAN’S® Apple Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Vidalia onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup dry white wine or white cooking wine
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 boneless pork tenderloins, 1 to 1 1/2 pounds each


  1. Step 1
    Preheat grill to medium high.

  2. Step 2
    In a medium bowl, whisk together the apple butter, onion, mustard, and wine. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Step 3
    In a small sauce pan, bring apple butter mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Set aside a few Tablespoons of the glaze to drizzle on the cooked meat before serving.

  4. Step 4
    Brush pork with oil and season with salt and pepper. Over direct heat, brown the tenderloin on all sides, about 5 minutes total.

  5. Step 5
    Brush meat with glaze and, if grill allows, move to indirect heat. Turn every 5 to 6 minutes to prevent glaze from scorching, brushing occasionally with additional glaze.

  6. Step 6
    Cook meat to an internal temperature of 160°F (cooking time will vary from 25 to 40 minutes, based on thickness of tenderloins and type of grill).

  7. Step 7
    Remove from the grill, brush again with glaze and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice into 1/2-inch thick slices, drizzle with reserved glaze, and serve immediately.
