Ingredient Tips

PORK TENDERLOIN
Have your tenderloin trimmed of its silver skin and cut into two sections: the tapered end and main section of the muscle.

Directions

Step 1 Of 7
1
Trim the tapered end off of the pork tenderloin.
2
In a large sealable plastic bag, combine ingredients for marinade and add your pork.
3
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.
4
Remove the pork from the bag and place on your hot grill with grate temperatures no higher than 500°F degrees.
5
Allow the meat to remain where placed for a few minutes before using tongs to turn.
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 flavo
6
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.
7
Rest for about 5-8 minutes and slice into medallions to serve.
