Grilled Pork Tenderloin Sliders with Berry Sauce and Blue Cheese Butter

I can't begin to tell you how good these are. The berry sauce is fantastic. It is complemented perfectly by the blue cheese butter.

We had a few leftover berries so we had those on the side.

Printable Recipe


  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • Favorite BBQ rub (I used Dizzy Pig's Jamaican Firewalk)
  • 8 slider buns, split
  • Berry sauce (see below)
  • Blue Cheese butter (see below)
  • 8 blackberries
  • Olive oil

1. Prepare grill for direct and indirect cooking.

2. Lightly brush tenderloin with oil. Sprinkle with rub. Place over direct heat on the grill and cook until seared. Repeat on other sides, then remove to indirect heat.

3. Cook until internal temperature reaches 145 F. Remove from grill and cover in foil. Let rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing.

4. Toast slider rolls if desired.

5. To assemble sliders, slather bottom of buns with the blue cheese butter. Add a slice or two of the tenderloin. Add a large dollop of the berry sauce, and the top of the bun.

6. Serve garnished with blackberries.

  • 1 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup blue berries
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 T water
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar

1. Place berries into a medium sauce pan over low heat. Add sugar, water, and vinegar.

3. Remove from heat and let cool.

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 T blue cheese, softened
