  • 1/2 cup port wine
  • 1 1/2 cups huckleberry preserves (may substitute Marion or blackberry preserves)

Directions

Buffalo Tenderloins: Lightly marinate buffalo tenderloins with fresh black pepper, kosher salt, roasted garlic, and 2 tablespoons olive oil for 2 hours in the refrigerator, then grill to desired doneness.

Teton Black Bar-B-Que Sauce: To a saute pan, add 2 teaspoons olive oil, shallots, rosemary, thyme, and sage over medium heat until shallots just soften, about 2 minutes. Lastly, add garlic and continue sauteing until mixture has caramelized. Add the port wine and scrape up the brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Continue cooking until sauce is reduced by about half. Add berry preserves, syrup, vinegar, Worcestershire, and cornstarch slurry and bring to a boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour through a fine strainer and season with fresh ground black pepper and kosher salt.

Serve grilled buffalo tenderloin and sauce with braised spinach and your favorite potato.
