Pork is a delicious meat for the grill. This easy pork tenderloin marinade can be quickly thrown together using common ingredients. Just mix it up, pop the tenderloin in a sealed ziploc baggie with the marinade and leave it in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight (yes, you need to plan ahead a bit!). As a bonus, it seems to be a kid-friendly recipe - our friends' kids devoured it... not too shabby for kids who only ever want peanut-butter sandwiches! This recipe is good for about 2 pounds of pork tenderloin.
To make: whisk together:
Set aside a small portion of the marinade to use as a sauce.
After marinating the pork tenderloin, get the BBQ ready for indirect heat. Lightly oil the barbecue grate and set the temperature to low or medium-low. Grill 30-40 minutes, or until desired done-ness. Remember to keep the temperature low - the honey in the marinade will burn if the temperature is too high!
If you prefer, you can also use this the reserved pork tenderloin marinade to baste the meat while it cooks (rather than use it as sauce). Don't add any more marinade in the last 5 minutes or so of grilling, to give the marinade a chance to cook as well.
