I am often asked which are my favorite places to dine in Columbus, OH but two of my favorites function primarily are catering businesses, one of which being Bleu & Fig. I’ve had the pleasure of dining in their event space more than once (including our rehearsal dinner), enjoying their off-site catering, and visited their newest addition, a cafe!

One of their most popular dishes, and also one of my favorites, is their black pepper pork tenderloin served topped with fig preserves. While I can easily order it from them, I decided to dabble with making my own for the first day of #FallFlavors week.

Black Pepper Pork Tenderloin Ingredients:

  • Pork tenderloin
  • Black pepper
  • Oil
  • Fig Preserves

I have to admit, I clearly don’t know their secret to making their version, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. All you need is four ingredients: rub the pork tenderloin with fresh cracked black pepper, cook on a greased grill until 145 F, let rest before slicing and top with fig preserves. It’s sweet and savory, and juicy!

For the fig preserves, I decided to use a jar that also added a bit of heat with the addition of jalapeno, but a simple sweet fig preserve would suffice if preferred. It was also served with garlic mashed cauliflower, and steamed green beans. Seemed like a great meal to ease into accepting the end of yet another summer to welcome in fall.

Cover tenderloin with tin foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
