Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Orange Marmalade Glaze
Recipe from www.simplyrecipes.com
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/3 cup orange marmalade
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 Tbsp plus 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
- Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 lb pork tenderloin (I used 2 small tenderloins that were about a pound and a half total.)
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced (optional)
1 In a small saucepan, bring the soy sauce, marmalade, honey, rice wine vinegar, and red pepper flakes to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from the flame and let cool to room temperature. Distribute the glaze evenly in 2 bowls. (I separated into 3 bowls. One for marinade, one for basting and one for dipping sauce.) Marinate the tenderloin roast for a minimum of 1 hour in the glaze.
2 Heat the grill to 350°F or medium. Put on the tenderloin. Grill 8 minutes on one side (check at 6 minutes), depending on size of pork loin. Then flip it, baste it. Grill another 6-10 minutes. Start checking with a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat, at about 6 minutes on the second side. Cook until internal temperature reaches 150°F. Remove from heat.
3 Let the pork rest 10 minutes. Thinly slice, sprinkle with the remaining glaze and scallions.
Serve with rice and/or some green vegetables.
Yield: Serves 3 to 4.
