Grilled Pork Tenderloins Recipe

We do a lot of grilling during the summer months, and this recipe is one my entire family loves. —Betsy Carrington, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. YIELD:8 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 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade from meat. Grill, covered, over indirect medium-hot heat for 20-35 minutes or until a thermometer reads 145°, turning occasionally and basting with reserved marinade. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with rice.

"Absolutely fantastic! I messed up on the tablespoon and teaspoon on a couple items but made no difference at all! I only added 1 tbs of brown sugar because with all that honey and teriyaki sauce it does not need anymore sweetness at all!"

"Wow. Marinade is really amazing and let it marinade for 24 hours. I would definitely save a little marinade to warm up to drizzle of the sliced pieces of pork."

"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."
