Prosicutto-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Sauce & Strawberries
This Prosciutto-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with balsamic sauce & strawberries is a great sweet and savory combo, perfect for a spring dinner. Make the sauce while the pork is in the oven. That way, the sauce is ready when the pork is.
Preheat oven to 400°.
Wrap pork with prosciutto, then secure with toothpicks. Tie pork with kitchen string.
Sear pork in 2 Tbsp. oil in a sauté pan over medium heat on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer pan to oven and roast pork until a thermometer inserted into center registers 145°, 10–12 minutes. Transfer pork to a dish, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Discard string and toothpicks.
Cook shallots in remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in a saucepan over medium heat until softened, 2 minutes. Add vinegar, increase heat to high, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer vinegar until reduced by one-third, about 10 minutes. Whisk in jam until dissolved; remove from heat and season sauce with salt and pepper.
Serve pork with sauce, fresh strawberries, and basil.
To secure the prosciutto to the tenderloin, first use toothpicks, then tie with kitchen string.
Adding strawberry jam to the sauce not only enhances the flavor, but it helps thicken the sauce as well.
