- 1 (1 pound) pork tenderloin roast*
- 1/2 cup Plum Sauce**
- 1/4 cup green onions, sliced
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
- 4 large garlic cloves, diced
- 2 teaspoons hot Chili Garlic Sauce**
In a large zippered or resealable plastic bag, combine Plum Sauce, green onions, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, and Chili Garlic Sauce. Add the pork tenderloin and seal the plastic bag. Rub the marinade well into the pork; refrigerate overnight.
When ready to cook, prepare your barbecue grill.
Grill the pork tenderloin over direct heat approximately 6 minutes per side until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of the roast registers an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. to 145 degrees F.
When the pork tenderloin is done to you liking, remove from the grill and transfer onto a cutting board; tent with aluminum foil and let roast stand 6 minutes before carving (meat temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees after it is removed from the grill).
Transfer onto a serving platter and serve with the thickened marinade over the top or on the side.
* Pork Tenderloin comes in a sealed package with two small tenderloins, about 1 pound each. I like to cook one and seal the other to freeze for a quick dinner on another night.
** Plum Sauce and Hot Chili Garlic Sauce are found in the Asian section of your grocery store.
