Top 9 Pork Tenderloin Recipes

The Most Popular Grilled Pork Tenderloin Recipes

Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorite meats to grill. Lean, tender, and loaded with flavor this is one of the most versatile cuts you can grill. The secret to a great grilled pork tenderloin is to start with a marinade. Being lean, it can dry out and a marinade protects the surface and helps to add flavor. Start the tenderloin on a hot fire to build a crust on the surface and to give it the great grilled flavor it deserves. Finish the pork over a low heat to get it to the level of doneness...MORE desired and to keep from overcooking the outside. These recipes are flavorful and are my favorites for a great grilled pork tenderloin.

    A unique blending of sage, cumin, and other spices are used in this recipe. I recommend grilling over charcoal, but gas works just as well. If so inclined, double the marinade recipe and set half aside for brushing onto the pork while it's cooking. What makes this recipe really work is the combination of the aromatic flavors of the sage combined with the earthiness of the cumin. A great combination that makes for a perfect pork tenderloin.
