Pork Tenderloin With Orange-Balsamic Glaze

This is one of our favourite ways to eat pork tenderloin as it is so easy to make, elegant enough for company and delicious. I omit the orange zest as the kids don't care for it. You could also substitute apricot jam for peach and omit the diced dried apricots. I cook mine on the gas barbeque by heating it up to desired temperature, turning one side off and placing the tenderloins on the side that was turned off. I tend to make extra glaze as I pour about 1/2 of it on the tenderloins before cooking. This recipe came from Rose Reisman's Secret for Permanent Weight Loss Cookbook.
