Grilled Marinated Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Grilled Marinated Pork Tenderloin Recipe

My sister, who has always had a knack for tossing spices and ingredients together, introduced this pork tenderloin dish to our family at a barbecue she hosted. She worked at the ingredients until she came up with a recipe she could share with all of us. It's a healthy alternative to steak, easy to prepare, and can be made ahead of time. —Lisa Peters, Dewitt, New York
