Instructions Checklist

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and sear until golden brown on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Wrap tenderloin in aluminum foil.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Grill the pork in its foil for 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mix balsamic vinegar, honey, mustard together with the remaining olive oil. Unwrap pork on the grill and liberally brush the glaze on all sides. Continue grilling, brushing on more glaze, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), about 10 minutes more.

  • Allow to rest at room temperature for 5 minutes before cutting. Drizzle with any remaining glaze if desired.

Cook's Note:

Original recipe is suitable for a 3- to 4-pound tenderloin.

Very good, no complaints, next time I’ll add about double the honey to make the glaze more glazy I did 5 lbs for 4 Adults and 4 Kids only a Couple small Pieces left over! Definitely make it again! Read More

Absolutely delicious. 2 1/2 lb for 6 people. I applied the rub 2 hours before searing. Read More

Make sure you marinate it. I didn't and it was like eating plain pork. I will try it again after letting it sit overnight. Read More

This recipe is a nice detour from what I consider to be classic pork tenderloin seasoning (applesauce, soy sauce, etc.). The balsamic vinegar, paprika and chili powder add such a lovely flavour and I had a really hard time not eating the entire tenderloin because it tasted so good! This recipe is definitely worth a try! Read More

This was easy and tasty, but we over-cooked it on the grill so not as juicy as we'd hoped. Will definitely make it again! Read More

We had two.75 lbs tenderloins. Kept them in foil 10 minutes and barbecued for 4 minutes a side. (We like them medium rare some pink showing). They came out excellent. Our family has another favorite pork tenderloin recipe but this one may take over. Juicy and tender. Read More

I didn't change much, but I did omit the paprika because I cooked this on a pellet smoker/grill at 375° for about 45 minutes (I like pork a little in the well done side). My husband is raving about how delicious it is! That's a big win for me! Read More
