Grilled Chipotle Pork Tenderloin

  • Combine marinade ingredients. Pour half of marinade into a resealable bag with pork tenderloin; cover and store other half of marinade until ready to cook pork. Marinate pork for 1 hour or more.
  • Pre-heat barbecue to medium-high. Discard marinade and cook pork over indirect heat {towards the edge} for 15-20 minutes per side, or until cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F {63°C}.
  • Place cooked pork tenderloin in aluminum foil, bringing the edges up around it to form a 'basket'. Pour the remaining marinade over the pork, and seal the aluminum foil, allowing everything to rest for 10 minutes.

Fresh Cherry Salsa:

  • Combine all ingredients and serve over the pork.


1 lb pork tenderloin serves roughly 3 people, so increase this recipe as needed to feed your family.
