Recipe by Cookin-jo
READY IN: 8hrs 30mins




  • Combine the sugar, green onions, garlic, lime juice, fish sauce and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add the tenderloins, making sure they are coated with the marinade.
  • Let sit in the fridge for as short as 4 hours, as long as 24 hours, turning when you can.
  • Heat grill or broiler in your oven. But the outdoor grill is best.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
