Ingredients Serves 4
For the pork tenderloin
16 ounce pork tenderloin

teaspoon curry powder
teaspoon ginger powder
dash soy sauce
dash olive oil
Have your tenderloin trimmed of its silver skin and cut into two sections: the tapered end and main section of the muscle.
10 Minutes for Prep, 15-20 Minutes for Cook
Trim the tapered end off of the pork tenderloin.
In a large sealable plastic bag, combine ingredients for marinade and add your pork.
Seal the bag and massage the spices, oil and soy sauce into the pork. Place in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours to marinate.
Remove the pork from the bag and place on your hot grill with grate temperatures no higher than 500°F degrees.
Hot Tip: Spices can burn at higher temperatures, which may or may not be a desired result. Plan to use a sweeter glaze to balance this flavor profile. A prepared jam or jelly can be brushed on when the meat is removed from the grill to create a thin layer of flavor.
Cook until an internal temperature of 140°F. The temperature will continue to rise to 145°F as the meat rests.
Hot Tip: The smaller tapered end will cook faster and can be removed from the grill before the section of the muscle.
Rest for about 5-8 minutes and slice into medallions to serve.
