Smoky Pork Tenderloin

This simple grilled tenderloin gets its flavor from a quick and simple marinade. If you can, allow the tenderloins to soak in it overnight for the best effect.
  • 3 pork tenderloins, about 3/4 lb. each
  • 3/4 c. orange juice
  • 1-2 tsp. liquid smoke
  • 4 T. soy sauce

Place the tenderloins in a resealable plastic bag. Pour the remaining ingredients into the bag, seal and toss to coat evenly. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 2-24 hours. (Longer is better.)

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Place the tenderloins on the grill and cook until an instant read thermometer reads 155 degrees when inserted in the thickest portion of each tenderloin. Remove the meat from the grill, tent it with foil and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

  • Yields: 6 servings
  • Preparation Time: 25 minutes, plus marinating time
