This recipe requires a tangy marinade overnight as a brine for the pork. The flavors of balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and Dijon mustard infuse the meat for a taste that is sweet and full of charbroiled flavor that is sealed in.

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.

Balsamic & Brown Sugar Pork Tenderloin

Serves 4. Total time: 4 hours

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper, 4 turns
  • 1 pound whole pork tenderloin

Instructions:

Trim the pork tenderloin of any fat and silver skin. 

Place the pork tenderloin in a zip gallon size bag. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl then pour the marinade over the pork. Refrigerate overnight or for at least eight hours. 

Bring the pork tenderloin to room temperature about a half an hour before grilling. Reserve the marinade. 

Fire up the grill to medium heat and grill the tenderloin until the internal temperature measures 145°F, about 20 minutes. Remove the tenderloin to a cutting board and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. 

Bring the reserved marinade to a gentle boil over medium heat on the stove top and simmer for 5 minutes. Drizzle the marinade over the sliced pork tenderloin and serve.
