Balsamic- Rosemary Grilled Pork Tenderloin

This pork tenderloin recipe turns out so tender and moist. It's great for grilling. I use an instant-read thermometer and pull it off the grill at 150 degrees. Perfect!


4 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
3 Tablespoons chopped green onions
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tablespoon cracked black pepper
1 Tablespoon sea salt
2 pounds pork tenderloin


1. Combine marinade ingredients in a large zip baggie. Add tenderloin and massage to work marinade into meat. Refrigerate in marinade for at least 6 hours.

2. When ready to grill, take zip bag out of refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before grilling. Preheat grill to medium-high. When ready to grill, oil the grate and wipe down to remove any residue so grates are clean. Remove pork from marinade and arrange on grill. Brown on all sides and cook through (firm to the touch), 8 to 12 minutes total, or until internal temperature in center reaches 150°F.

3. Remove tenderloin from grill and allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing.


*Use an instant-read thermometer to check temperature of meat.

    I let this recipe marinade for 2 days and was told it tasted like steak. This will be my “go to” pork tenderloin recipe for a long time! Five star recipe!

    Do you have recommendations for an alternate cooking method?  I don’t have access to a grill but the recipe sounds great!

      You can definitely bake this… to a center temperature of 145 degrees. Probably 400 for about 25 minutes.

    Absolutely love this recipe. However I find I need to at  least double the cook time.
