Maple BBQ Pork Tenderloin

15 minutes Cook time 20 minutes Prep time 4 servings



On the BBQ

  1. In a dish, combine maple syrup, soy sauce, oil, ginger, garlic and orange zest. Add pork tenderloins and coat in marinade mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1–8 hours.
  2. Preheat barbecue to high and oil grill.
  3. Remove pork tenderloins from marinade and transfer to a plate. Strain marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer over medium heat until marinade thickens slightly, about 8 minutes. Strain sauce again for a smooth consistency. Let cool.
  4. Grill meat on the BBQ for 12–15 minutes on all sides or until a thermometer inserted into the centre reads 60 °C (140 °F) for medium rare. Turn off heat and brush tenderloins with sauce. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes.
  5. Cut into 1-cm (½-in.) thick slices. Drizzle with remaining sauce and garnish with green onions. Serve with rice, carrots roasted en papillote or spinach salad.
  6. For carrots en papilotte,lace small Nantes carrots on large sheets of aluminum foil. Drizzle with sesame oil and a bit of rice vinegar and water. Season with salt and pepper. Close the papillotes and grill over medium heat for about 20 minutes or until tender.
