Grilling on medium low heat will prevent burning the brown sugar and leave a crystallized crust to the meat. Letting the meat rest after grilling helps redistribute and lock in the juices.
This grilled pork tenderloin pairs well with my Mediterranean Couscous with Grilled Vegetables, Lemon & Goat Cheese for a complete meal. Enjoy this dinner outside on the patio with the whole family.

I cook pork tenderloin all the time. I’ll have to try your recipe sometime.
Hudson Reamer says
A truly marvelous recipe for pork tenderloin. I have made this several times. I followed the recipe exactly each time. The marinade only makes a small amount, not a big bag of liquid, so I double it each time. It almost like a cross between a rub and a marinade. Delivers restaurant quality flavors straight off the grill. A must try.
How would you bake this?
In the heart of bbq country near Memphis, TN this recipe received the highest compliment I know, which is when they come back for more & want to eat the meat right off the cutting board!
