Around here our grill gets a workout all year long. Even still, when the weather turns even the slightest bit warmer our grilling, or should I say, Randy’s grilling, kicks up a notch and just about every meal involves the grill. I’m not complaining one bit. Randy is a magnificent grill master. Lucky me!

Even though his Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken Wings are crowd pleasing, grilled pork tenderloin, like this Honey Soy Glazed Pork Tenderloin, is right up there in the taste department. Plus, it couldn’t be easier to prepare. It’s so very easy! Really.

How to Make Honey Soy Glazed Pork Tenderloin

  1. In a large zip-top plastic bag, combine olive oil, soy sauce, honey, fresh lime juice, minced garlic, ground ginger, and ground pepper. Mix everything up well, then add the pork tenderloin(s). Coat them on all sides. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least one hour, or until ready to grill. You can marinate them up to one day ahead of time.
  2. When ready to grill, preheat the grill to a medium heat. Whisk together all of the glaze ingredients, and set aside.
  3. Once the grill is preheated, place the tenderloin(s) on the grill. Cook on each side for about 5 minutes, then turn a quarter turn. Repeat for all sides. Cook until a meat thermometer reads 145-degrees F in the thickest part of the tenderloins.
  4. When the tenderloin(s) have reached the proper temperature, brush the tenderloin(s) generously with the glaze. Let the tenderloin(s) cook for another minute or two, but be careful and watch to make sure that the glaze does not burn.
  5. Remove from the grill, and allow to rest, covered for about about 10-15 minutes before slicing. Drizzle with any remaining glaze.

About the Marinade

The simple marinade for this recipe can be whipped up a day before to let the tenderloin(s) mingle a while until ready to grill. Over the years we’ve tried countless marinade combinations for chicken and pork. Honey and soy seem to be a regular contributor to most of them. Their flavors partner so well together. The sweet honey combined with that umami thing that soy has going on equals big flavor. Add in a little garlic, ginger and lime juice and you’ve got yourself a flavor party! You can easily customize the marinade and tweak it to your liking. Just add a little bit of seasonings at a time and taste to adjust.

I think you’ll find this Honey Soy Glazed Pork Tenderloin Recipe will become a regular part of your meal repertoire for any night of the week. Serve it with roasted broccoli or a fabulous salad for quick and tasty meal. Try it soon and let me know what you think!
