Asian-Glazed Grilled Pork Tenderloin

When I bought this cookbook, I just knew I had to make this recipe. The pork was so tender and delicious. I served this with the cilantro and coconut rice and the Asian grilled green beans with mushrooms. A great summer dinner - no oven required.

1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 TBS freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 TBS Dijon mustard
1 TBS honey
1 TBS sesame oil
1 TBS reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 TBS grated ginger root
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp grated lemon zest

3 (12 oz/ea) pork tenderloins

Make glaze by combining the glaze ingredients in a small bowl and mix well; set aside.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.  Brush grill rack lightly with oil.  Grill pork for about 15-20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes.  Pork should be just slightly pink in the center (140-145 degrees).  Do not overcook the pork.  Remember the pork will continue to cook as it rests.

Brush pork generously with glaze during the last five minutes of cooking time.  The more you baste the pork, the better it will taste.  Make sure you use all of the glaze.

Place pork on a cutting board, cover loosely with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.  Cut pork into thin slices and serve.

Serves 6
