grilled pork tenderloin


Growing up pork usually meant pork chops, and it was never really a favorite with me. Then as an adult I discovered the pork tenderloin. It is so simple to prepare and as long as you do not over cook it is never dry. I like to marinate the tenderloins for 30 minutes or so before cooking.



1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon sesame oil

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/8 teaspoon ground cumin

1 clove garlic, smashed


Heat the grill, or preheat the oven to 450°.

If grilling, cook with lid on, rotating loins to brown on all sides, until a meat thermometer registers 150°. Set aside to rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve with chutney or mustard.


Alternatively you may brown the tenderloins in a hot skillet with a little olive oil. Once all sides are browned transfer skillet to preheated oven and continue cooking until a meat thermometer reads 150°.
