Grilled Pork Tenderloin a Soy-Orange Marmalade Glaze

I have been following the "Simply Recipe" blog for some time, and I have made several recipes from it. I appreciate the step-by-step photos, and have had success every time. This recipe is no exception.

I had recently cleaned out reorganized my pantry, and discovered a jar of Orange Marmalade lurking in a corner, totally forgotten.  The ingredients for the marinade were simple-- soy sauce, honey, orange marmalade, rice vinegar and red pepper flakes.  I had all of them on hand except for needing to buy a pork tenderloin.  Now that the days are longer, and we are blessed with sunshine, it was time to uncover our gas grill.  Dinner is solved!

I was able to speed up the one hour marinating time, by using my Food Saver Marinator in half.  The other half of the marinade was lightly simmered and cooled. My husband seared the pork on all sides with direct heat.

Then, he moved it to indirect heat for about 20 minutes.

 We cook our pork to 145F and then let it rest for about 10 minutes.
Since I had Bok Choy in our fridge, I sliced them in half and brushed them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper.  They were grilled, on both side,  in about 4-5 minutes. I also made coconut rice as another side dish. From start to finish, dinner was on the table in less than two hours-- half of that was waiting for the marinade to do its magic.

TASTING NOTES:  For some folks, the pork might look a bit too rare for you-- and I understand. Back in the day, there was a fear of trichinosis but that is no longer true.  We have been cooking our pork to between 140F-145F without any health issues. With this recipe, the pork was very juicy and flavorful.  The marinade is so simple and yet so delicious! I would cut a bite of pork and dip it in the sauce-- and we loved it!  This recipe is definitely going to be on our regular rotation.
I thank Simply Recipes for sharing this on their blog. All recipe development credit goes to them. Credit goes to me for making it, and loving it.  I hope that you do, too.

As always, a printable recipe is at the very bottom of this post.
