During the summer months grilled pork tenderloin is a frequent item on our menu. The Asian influenced sauce in this recipe would also be great with chicken or flank. Nectarines would be a nice substitute for the peaches. The marinading time is not reflected in the prep time.

My family really enjoyed this recipe... even my 8 year old (without a lot of sauce). I did not blanch the peaches but instead threw them on the grill with the pork, cut in half. I think we might have liked it even better following the recipe exactly. We served it with a green salad and couscous. I think this would go over really well for guests too!
