WEIGHT WATCHERS SMARTPOINTS- Raspberry Chipotle BBQ Sauce with Pork Tenderloin .

INGREDIENTS:

For the Raspberry Chipotle BBQ Sauce*:

2 teaspoons canola oil
1/4 cup diced onions
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (just chop up the ones that come in a can)
½ cup canned tomato sauce
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 cup fresh raspberries


*Sauce recipe makes 1 ½ cups, but we’re only using ½ cup for this recipe. Refrigerate or freeze the remaining sauce to use another time, or use more pork if you’re cooking for a big group!

For the Grilled Pork:

2 (1 lb each) trimmed pork tenderloins
½ cup of the Raspberry Chipotle BBQ sauce (see above)

DIRECTIONS:

To make the BBQ sauce:

Bring the oil over medium heat in a medium sauce pan. Add the onions and cook for 3-5 minutes until translucent. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 30-60 seconds until garlic is fragrant. Add the chipotle peppers, tomato sauce, raspberries, brown sugar and cider vinegar and stir together. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer for about 15 minutes.

Using an immersion blender (or a regular blender), blend the sauce until smooth. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use.

For the Grilled Pork:

Set aside ½ cup of the Raspberry Chipotle BBQ sauce.


Pre-heat the grill to medium temperature. Place the pork tenderloins on the grill and grill until almost fully done (cooking times will vary by grill, ours took about 15-20 minutes). When the tenderloins are almost cooked, move them to indirect heat (either the top “bun shelf” if your grill has one or a burner that’s turned off with the other burners on high). Use a pastry brush to brush the top and sides of the tenderloins with about half of the reserved BBQ sauce. Close the lid and let it cook a few minutes while the sauce cooks on a bit. Flip the tenderloins and use the remaining sauce to brush the other side. Close the lid and finish cooking until pork is cooked through and juices run clear.
