You’ll want to plan ahead for our Citrus Grilled Pork Tenderloin recipe. A spicy citrus marinade with orange and lime juices, Dijon mustard and hot pepper flakes gives this tenderloin a splash of tangy with a dash of spicy. Then it’s just 20 minutes on the grill and a 10-minute rest for a light and refreshing twist on traditional pork roast.


For the Pork Tenderloin

  • 1 (1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pound) whole pork tenderloin

For the Marinade

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes


Step 1 Of 5
In a large bowl, combine olive oil, orange juice, lime juice, vinegar, salt, fennel seeds, pepper, garlic, cumin, Dijon mustard and hot pepper flakes.
Place tenderloin in a loaf pan or plastic zip top bag. Pour the marinade over the pork. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
Preheat grill to 400°F.
Place the pork tenderloin on the grill and close the lid. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 145°F using an <a href="">instant-read thermometer</a> , about 15 to 20 minutes.
Hot Tip
Rotate the tenderloin every 3 to 4 minutes or so to cook all 4 sides evenly.
Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
Hot Tip
Giving your meat the time it needs to rest allows juices to redistribute, retaining moisture for tender meat. The internal temperature will continue to rise 10 to 15 degrees until it levels out and then begins to fall.
