TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min.
MAKES: 8-10 servings


  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 teaspoons ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 1 pound each)
  • Hot cooked rice


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients. Pour half of the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add tenderloins. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain and discard marinade from meat. Grill, covered, over indirect medium-hot heat for 10-12 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°, basting with reserved marinade. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with rice. Yield: 8-10 servings.
Freeze option: Freeze uncooked pork in bag with marinade. Transfer reserved marinade to a freezer container; freeze. To use, completely thaw tenderloins and marinade in refrigerator. Grill as directed.

"GREAT marinade. I improvised a little because I didn't have teriyaki sauce or onion powder. I used more soy and added a little more honey and sugar than called for. I used onion flakes and garlic powder. Even though I only marinaded for 8 hours the pork was so flavorfull. I used all the marinade for the meat and then boiled the marinade for basting."

"This is an outstanding recipe! My family and company loved it. Even the leftovers are delicious--so tender and juicy. The flavor of the marinade is wonderful and would also be great on chicken and even salmon. I will definitely make this again and will experiment with it on other meats."
