Spicy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

I was experimenting in the kitchen the other day, and this is what I ended up with. I topped the tenderloin with sautéed mushrooms and served it with steamed asparagus and white rice. Prep time does not include overnight marinade.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First, make the marinade.
  2. Combine soy sauce, sherry, mustard, horseradish, garlic, ginger, red pepper, and onion powder.
  3. Shake well in a sealed container to blend.
  4. Place Tenderloin in a 1 gallon ziploc bag.
  5. Pour marinade over tenderloin in bag and seal.
  6. Refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.
  7. Heat grill to medium heat, about 350-375°F.
  8. Remove meat from marinade.
  9. Reserve marinade!
  10. Grill tenderloin over medium heat about 25-30 minutes or until done.
  11. Internal temp should reach 170°F to be done.
  12. While tenderloin is grilling, heat reserve marinade in a saucepan to a boil.
  13. Combine a little water with a little cornstarch and slowly add to boiling marinade, stirring constantly to achieve a medium bodied sauce.
  14. When tenderloin is done, slice thinly and arrange on plate.
  15. Top with sauce & serve.

Delicious company Pork tenderloin, enjoyed by all!! Just the right amount of heat, loved the ginger and sherry, the marinade/sauce was outstanding, guests couldn't get enough of it. I used English hot mustard as I had no Chinese mustard, another time I might put more horseradish in it, this time I served extra on the side. Grilled it on our indoor grill, it looked impressive. Thanks for sharing a good one!!

Very good flavor, just way TOO salty for me. Next time I will use Light Soy Sauce or substitue something else. If you like spicy, you'll need to kick it up a notch. It was flavorful, but not even warm. Still great recipe!
