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!
- 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)
- 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.
- Grill preparation:
- 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.
- Oven preparation:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- 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.
- 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.
