Grilled Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin
This Grilled Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin covered with a sweet and sticky glaze is a go-to recipe for your bbq repertoire. Marinated for a few hours in a homemade teriyaki sauce, the meat has absorbed the tastes of the garlic, ginger, and soy sauce, it’s simply delicious! Pork is lean meat and takes no time to be grilled and ready. You can serve it with a side of rice, vegetables, or an Asian summer salad.
Hi there, It’s Melanie from Bon Appét’Eat. I’m so excited to be virtually grilling on BBQinq with the Nolands to share this amazing and easy dish! I have made this recipe for teriyaki pork tenderloin so many times and it is always a hit. I serve it with a side of rice and broccoli but sometimes with my quinoa fried rice or this summery dish packed with vegetables: one-pot ratatouille.

CAN I MAKE THIS PORK TENDERLOIN AHEAD OF TIME?
You can prepare this marinade ahead of time and freeze it along with the fresh meat from the butcher or store. However, when you take it out of the freezer, make sure to thaw it overnight in the fridge and allow a couple of hours for the marinade to soak in the meat.
- 1/2 cup of soy sauce
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons of crushed ginger or ginger powder
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 3 teaspoons of crushed garlic
- 2 pork tenderloin (500g or one pound each)
- 1 teaspoon of cornstarch.
In a big container or bowl, combine all the ingredients of the marinade except the corn starch. Whisk well and add the meat in it. Toss and turn to coat.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Place the meat on a plate and turn on your barbecue.
Pour the marinade into a pot and bring it to a boil. Add in the cornstarch and whisk until it thickens. Set this glaze aside.
Put your meat on the grill and brush with the glaze regularly. Cook each sides 10 minutes. (or until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.)
Once you take the meat off the grill, cover it with foil and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing it.
Serve and enjoy!
