Here is a different and very tasty and tender way to make tenderloin. Goes nicely with stir fried veggies. For healthier version of recipe use light beer. Cook time includes marinating time; actual grilling time is 25-30 minutes. Can also be roasted in a shallow baking dish in the oven at 375F instead of grilling.
- 1⁄2 cup beer (we like Cutthroat Porter in this)
- 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 (3/4 lb) pork tenderloin, trimmed of all visible fat
- vegetable oil cooking spray
- 4 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary, to garnish (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine beer and next 5 ingredients, stirring well.
- Place pork in a heavy duty zip-top plastic bag, and pour beer mixture over pork; seal bag and shake until meat is well coated.
- Marinate in the refrigerator overnight, turning bag occasionally.
- Remove pork from marinade, reserving marinade.
- Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-low to medium hot coals. I have a gas grill and spray the top rack with cooking spray before lighting the grill.
- Place pork on rack; grill, covered, 30 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part reads 160F, turning often and basting with marinade (I turn and baste every 5-10 minutes).
- Let stand 10 minutes.
- Slice diagonally across grain into thin slices and garnish if desired.
