Balsamic Honey Tenderloin

Total Time

This recipe came to me recently in one of several online newsletters I subscribe to. With pork tenderloin being on special this weekend, I decided to try it. It is actually a barbeque recipe but I did it indoors on the broiler with good results. It was good with one hour of marinating so you can imagine how good it would be with a full 24!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine the honey, mustard, vinegar, oil, garlic, salt and pepper; add the pork, turning to coat. This can be done up to 24 hours before cooking.
  2. If not cooking immediately, cover and refrigerate until ready to do so.
  3. Reserving the marinade, place the pork on a greased grill over medium-high heat; brush with the marinade.
  4. Close the lid and cook, turning occasionally, for about 18 minutes or until just a hint of pink remains inside.
  5. Transfer to a cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes.
  6. Cut into 1/2-inch thick slices.

I found this recipe in the Best of Bridge series. This is a nice, easy marinade for pork. I used one tenderloin and cut the recipe in half. I would use this one again

This is SO good. I used a grainy sweet bavarian mustard for this. It is SO flavorful and kept the meat moist. I do think it would be even better with more garlic! I marinated 24 hours and wrapped each tenderloin in heavy duty foil and tossed it on the grill. No fuss, no muss! Perfectly flavored pork tenderloin. It's a keeper for sure.
