Ingredients for Grilled Honey-Glazed Pork Tenderloins
½ cup Manuka honey
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons Herbes De Province seasoning mixture (or another preferred seasoning)
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
2 lbs. pork tenderloin
3 medium-sized onions
Directions for Grilled Honey-Glazed Pork Tenderloins
- Combine Manuka honey, vinegar, garlic, herbs, salt, and pepper in a shallow pan to form a marinade. Add pork, and turn to coat it well. Cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours, turning pork occasionally.
- Remove pan from refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling. Prepare grill for a medium-hot fire with indirect heat area.
- Slice onions in rounds ½ to ¾-inch thick.
- Remove pork from marinade, and boil marinade for 1 minute. Taste and add more salt if needed.
- Grill pork over indirect heat, covered, until the middle is about 145 degrees F (25-30 minutes).
- Brush pork generously with marinade, and turn pork every 10 minutes to evenly cook.
- Put onions over direct heat, and brush with marinade. Turn frequently, continuing to brush with marinade, until well-marked and soft (8-12 minutes). Move onions off direct heat to finish up with the pork.
- Let pork rest for 5 minutes before slicing into ¾-inch thick slices—yields about 4-6 servings. Serve with grilled onions and after that, most importantly, have a great dinner!
