    Cookin-jo's Note:

    Pork tenderloin on the barbecue has never been so tender or simple. I found this recipe in Gourmet magazine and didn't like the carmelizing process, so I just made it my own marinade. And my brother's tips on grilling tenderloin made it so easy!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine the sugar, green onions, garlic, lime juice, fish sauce and salt in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Add the tenderloins, making sure they are coated with the marinade.
    3. 3
      Let sit in the fridge for as short as 4 hours, as long as 24 hours, turning when you can.
    4. 4
      Heat grill or broiler in your oven. But the outdoor grill is best.
    5. 5
      My brother's trick to grill these is to put them on the grill, on medium heat, and cover for 7 minutes, not disturbing them. Then turn over for 6 minutes. And then turn off the grill and let rest for 5.
    6. 6
      With my propane grill, I do them for 8,7,6. You want a bit of pink showing in the middle but almost all white.
    7. 7
      I love to eat these with a thai sweet and hot sauce, kids love them with plum sauce, and some just like them as is.

      EXCELLENT! I marinated about 20 hours, then broiled in-house (winter time) about 5 1/2 minutes each 'side' on HI, came out great. Note that you have to make 2 tenderloins because: 1. they come 2/pack, and 2. one will be completely eaten by 'tasting' before you're ready to serve. (Initially it doesn't look like enough marinade, but after about 6 or 8 hours you no longer doubt).

      WOW!!! This was great! I followed the instructions for the propane grill to a "T", and it was perfect. I served it with rice and topped it all with fresh cilantro---delicious! I'm planning on using the leftover pork for Vietnamese noodle salad (a great recipe is Hanoi Bun Bao--Hanoi Bun Bao on Recipezaar) instead of the beef. Thanks for a great recipe!

      Delicious and easy! I marinated the meat for a day and cooked them in my grill pan on the top of the stove. Will certainly make this again!
