Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin With Peanut Sauce

Recipe by Chef PotPie
READY IN: 17mins




  • In large bowl, whisk the coconut milk, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, garlic and coriander to make a smooth sauce.
  • Trim the pork of excess fat and silverskin.
  • Butterfly the tenderloins by splitting each one lengthwise almost but not quite all the way through, so the halves remain attached.
  • Open each tenderloin like a book, cover with plastic wrap, and pound to an even 1/2 inch thickness.
  • Place the pork loins in a bowl with marinade and turn to coat. Let marinate 10-20 minutes, (or up to several hours in the refrigerator.)
  • While pork marinates, heat gas grill on high, clean and oil grates.
  • Remove tenderloins from marinade, letting excess marinade drip back into the bowl, (don't discard the marinade.).
  • Grill, uncovered, turning once, until just cooked through, 5-7 minutes. (Cut into one to check.) Transfer to a carving board and let stand 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pour marinade into small saucepan and add 2 tablespoons of water, bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes. If sauce seems too thick, thin it with 1-2 tablespoons water.
  • Slice pork and serve with sauce on the side.
