Grilled Maple Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin


Pork tenderloin is a nice cut if meat if your looking to do something a little fancier on a weeknight. Traditional roasted a tenderloin can be grilled to perfection easily. The key to a great grilled tenderloin is low heat and a solid marinade time.  

Serves 4-6
Full time 5 1/2 hours (includes 5 hours marinade time)

You will need:

For Marinade 
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 tbsp whole grain Dijon mustard
1/2 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil 
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

2 lb. pork tenderloin 

Let us begin:

In a zip top bag combine all the marinade ingredients and squish around to fully incorporate.


Add the tenderloin into the bag, press out excess air and message meat with marinade.

Your going to want to let this marinade at least 4-5 hours to create the best possible flavor. You can always do what I do marinade while at work, with this marinade there isn't "too much" marinading possible.

When your ready to cook, heat your grill to a nice medium low heat.

Spray or oil rack to prevent sticking, I use weber's grill spray.

Carefully remove pork from marinade. Discard remaining marinade.

Place pork on grill, rotating every 6-7 minutes to create even grill cooking.

The pork will take roughly 25-30 minutes to grill, making sure to stay on lower heat to prevent the sugar in the marinade from burning.

Remove from grill and let rest 5 minutes.

Slice, serve, and enjoy!
