Description

Brown Sugar and Garlic Grilled Pork Tenderloin is robust and smoky with a nice sweet-to-savory ratio. Fire up the grill because this is your new go-to summertime barbecue meat.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 1-1.5 pound pork tenderloin

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and mustard.
  2. Place the pork tenderloin in a large sealable bag, and pour the prepared sauce over the top. Remove as much air from the bag, and zip shut.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours.
  4. Thirty minutes before you plan to cook the meat, remove the baggie from the fridge, and let the meat rest at room temperature.
  5. Preheat your grill over high heat. Clean and oil the grates.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium to medium-high, and place your pork tenderloin in the center. The loin has three sides — grill each side 5 minutes at a time, continuing to turn to a new side after each 5 minutes.
  7. Cook until the pork until it reaches 140 degrees F. on an instant read thermometer, about 25 minutes on the grill.
  8. Let the pork rest for 5 minutes before slicing, and serve right away.

Notes

  • A pork loin and a pork tenderloin are two different cuts of meat. A loin will be much larger, around 4 pounds. A tenderloin will be around 1.5 pounds, give or take a half pound. Don’t mix up the two for this recipe.
  • Honor the fact that a pork tenderloin has three sides, and turn it so that it’s on one of said sides each time you rotate it. This’ll give the best texture and cook it evenly.
