Memorial Day Grilling: Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

This is definitely one of those "prep the morning of or night before and then throw on the grill when ready" recipes. However, the longer it marinates the better it gets. Here’s the recipe:

1 pork tenderloin
6 cloves minced garlic
1 cup teriyaki
Soy sauce
Salt and pepper

In a large ziplock bag place your tenderloin, the teriyaki, garlic, a few dashes of soy sauce and salt and pepper to your liking. Zip up the bag and smoosh--yes I said smoosh--it all around so all the garlic and salt and pepper gets all over the tenderloin. Place the bag in the fridge for at least 6 hours. Remember: The longer it marinates the better it gets, but marinate it no longer than 24 hours.

When ready to cook, place on the grill and cook, turning once, until slightly pink. Remove from the grill and place on a plate and cover with aluminum foil for about 15 minutes. This will allow all the juices to absorb back into the meat and also cook a little bit longer. Slice and serve.
