  • 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.

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

For this recipe I used a one pound tenderloin. I kept all the measurements the same. I poured the spices in a ziplock bag with the pork and shook. Then I put the bag in the refrigerator for an hour. To cook I poured in the oil and set the burner at medium-high. I seared the tenderloin and then poured in the glaze (keep some for your plate). Unfortunately the medium-high temperature immediately boiled it so I rolled the pork in the glaze before it evaporated or burned. I turned the heat down to medium and covered. I continued to turn my tenderloin every few minutes. It took about 30 minutes before my thermometer read 145. The seasoning had good flavor. Read More
