Cinnamon Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Cinnamon Grilled Pork Tenderloin

2 whole 1 1/2–2 pound pork tenderloins

Pork Tenderloin Marinade Recipe
3 cloves garlic
3 green onions
3 tablespoons each: honey, brown sugar, dry red wine
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup soy sauce
Red food coloring, optional

Chop the garlic and green onions finely. Combine honey, brown sugar, and wine in a large bowl. Add onions and garlic. Stir in cinnamon and then the soy sauce.

Place the tenderloins in the bowl, coating them well with the marinade. Cover the bowl and marinate the meat for at least 2 hours, turning occasionally. (It may be left in the refrigerator overnight.)

Remove the pork from the marinade and place it on the grill over medium heat. Reserve marinade for basting. Grill until cooked through, about 30 to 45 minutes, turning and basting often. Transfer to a platter, cut into 1/2" slices, and serve. Serves 10-14 people.

Note: 2-3 teaspoons of red food coloring may be added to the marinade to give the mixture that Chinese red color. It bleeds slightly into the meat for an unusual, red-ringed look.
