If you don't have a large zip lock bag, you can marinate in a shallow pan, but the bag works best. This tastes great! Prep time does not include the marinating time!
- 1 lb pork tenderloin
- 1⁄8 cup soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- 1⁄2 tablespoon honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1⁄4 cup pineapple juice
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 1⁄8 cup ketchup
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup cold water
- 1⁄2 cup unsalted dry roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)
- Place tenderloin in a large zip top bag. Combine soy sauce and next 6 ingredients; stir well. Pour over the tenderloin. Seal bag securely. Marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours, turning occasionally.
- Remove tenderloin from the marinade, discarding marinade. Grill, covered, over medium hot coals (350 to 400 degrees) for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the tenderloin registers 160 degrees, turning occasionally.
- Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar and the next 4 ingredients in a small saucepan. Stir well. Bring to a boil.
- Combine the cornstarch and water, stirring until smooth. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the brown sugar mixture, and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.
- Slice the tenderloin, and place on a serving platter. Sprinkle with the peanuts, and serve with the warm sauce.
Made for PRMR! Fantastic tenderloin. I did not have pineapple juice so I substituted orange juice. Great flavor and so easy t make. Loved it! Thanks
Great pork dinner with an out of this world marinade, sort of like a sweet and sour sauce, but very good. With the weather warming up here, it was nice to get the grill going again. Made for one easy fix-it dinner. Made for Zaar Stars.
Everyone's first response was - wow, I like the pork. I like the marinade flavor as well as the sauce. Will definitely be making this one again. We did end up grilling it indoors on my daughters new Lodge cast iron grill pan. We just got back from the outlet store. Now we have to wash it so we can wrap it and put it under the tree. Thanks for a wonderful dinner breezermom! Made for Went to the Market 2012.
