We know them as sweet spreads for toast. But jams and jellies, like this apricot spread, can do so much more.


  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 12 ounces each), trimmed of excess fat

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 jar (10 to 12 ounces) apricot jam, (about 1 cup)

  • ¼ cup spicy brown mustard


  1. Heat broiler; set rack 4 inches from heat. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Rub pork with oil; season with salt and pepper. Broil 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk together jam and mustard. Cook over medium heat until jam melts, 3 to 4 minutes; remove from heat. Transfer half to a small bowl for brushing. Cover pan to keep remaining sauce warm.

  3. Remove pork from broiler; brush with reserved sauce. Continue broiling until pork is blackened in spots and registers 150 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, 5 to 10 minutes more.

  4. Cover pork loosely with foil; let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Serve drizzled with warm sauce.
