Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the marinade: Combine the orange juice, vinegar, ginger, and orange zest in a small bowl.
  2. Put the pork tenderloins in a shallow pan and pour the marinade over them. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours.
  3. To make the Orange-Ginger Sauce: Melt the marmalade in a small pan. Add the ginger, soy sauce, cider vinegar, and mustard, stirring to combine; keep warm.
  4. Prepare the grill with a medium-hot fire.To gauge the heat, hold your hand palm down about 4 inches above the grill. If you can hold it there for only 5-6 seconds it means you have a medium hot fire.
  5. Remove the meat from the marinade and season it with salt and pepper. Grill, turning at least once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the meat reads 150F, 15 to 20 minutes. Brush with some of the Orange-Ginger Sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Allow the meat to rest on a cutting board tented with aluminum foil for a few minutes before slicing. Slice the meat 1/2 inch thick on the diagonal. Pass the remaining sauce at the table.

delicious! i added some garlic and marinated the tenderloins overnight. too cold to grill here so i roasted them at 450 in the oven 15 minutes, turned over, added some sauce and roasted an additional 15 minutes. very tender with great flavor.

Made this for company. I added minced garlic to the marinade.I also thickened the sauce with a cornstarch slurry because I thought it was too thin. Everyone loved it. Next time I might add a small amount of red pepper to give it a heat dimension, but was good as is.

I served this to family and guests for dinner, everyone loved it! I added 2 cloves of garlic to the marinade and roasted the tenderloins in the oven. The Orange and Ginger Sauce is wonderful, full of flavour! I was nibbling on some of the leftover pork today and the orange flavour in the meat was deeeelicious. Thanks for a great recipe Cookiedog.
