Adobo-style Grilled Pork Tenderloin.

This Adobo-style Grilled Pork Tenderloin is so simple and flavorful, it will become a go-to at your house! Marinated in garlic, vinegar and soy sauce, it can be prepared on the grill or in the oven. The marinade also works beautifully on turkey tenderloin and chicken!


Adobo-style Grilled Pork Tenderloin


  • 8 garlic cloves, finely minced or crushed
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (see notes)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 1? pounds each)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil (only if preparing in oven)


  1. Stir together garlic, cider vinegar, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a small bowl. Marinate the pork for at least 20 minutes, or, ideally, overnight. If you’re pressed for time, no worries, it will still be great! When I’m in a time crunch, I like to use a fork to poke wholes into the pork tenderloin, which helps the marinade penetrate the meat.
  2. Grill preparation:
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Sear the tenderloins on all sides, then grill for about 20-30 minutes, rotating every 10 minutes, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees. Let it rest about 5-10 minutes before slicing.
  4. Oven preparation:
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  6. Heat canola oil in a large, heavy saute pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add pork, and brown all over, about 4 minutes.
  7. Transfer pan to oven. Roast pork, turning occasionally, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees, about 20 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board, and try to let it rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.
