Marinated Pork Tenderloin

The pork we had was large – 22oz (660gr). We used the same amount of marinade as in the recipe, but cooked the tenderloin for 25 – 30 minutes. 
Use a meat thermometer for the best results. Pork is best if it’s slightly pink in the center.


  • 1 pork tenderloin, 14oz (420gr)
  • 1/3 cup (3oz, 90ml) cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup (2oz, 60ml) soy sauce
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 2 tbs whole grain mustard 
  • 2 bay (laurel) leaves
  • 2 tbs ketchup


  • Earlier in the day, at least 4 hours and up to 12 hours before cooking mix all ingredients except ketchup and pork.
  • Put into a deep bowl or a plastic bag.
  • Add pork, turning to coat well.
  • Refrigerate, turning once or twice, until ready to cook. 
  • When ready to cook, remove pork, reserving marinade.
  • Cook pork on barbecue grill for 20 – 25 minutes, turning to brown all sides. Internal temperature should reach 145F (62C) or until only slightly pink in center.
  • While pork cooks heat reserved marinade in a small saucepan. Simmer for 5 minutes
  • Stir in ketchup and remove from heat.
  • When pork is done, remove and let rest a few minutes. 
  • Carve into 1″ (2.5cm) thick slices, drizzle with sauce and serve.


The Prep Time is 5 minutes and the Cook Time is 30…..
But there is 4 – ? hours of marinating time in-between
