Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Orange Marmalade

Although we are still waiting for summer to arrive here in Portland, go away rain, we have fired up the BBQ!

One of our families favorite things to throw on the grill is  pork tenderloin.  It is so easy to grill and always comes out tender and moist.

In fact, pork tenderloin is our go to Sunday meal.  I just put it in some marinade the night before and when we get home from church it is ready to throw on the grill.  I like to buy the smaller tenderloins.  I usually pick up the double pack at Costco.  You actually end up with four smaller tenderloins, two in each package.  I usually just throw one pack in the freezer and cook up the other.

This week I marinaded it in some pineapple juice, apple cider vinegar and soy sauce which helps make the meat tender.  But the best and easiest part of the whole thing was I basted it (rather my husband basted it as he is the grillmaster at our house) with orange marmalade.  I just heated it up in a sauce pan to thin it out and make it easier to work with.  Baste it 4-5 times during the cooking process and you end up with a sweet, lovely coating on your tenderloin.  You could also use some type of pepper jelly or jalapeno jelly for a different twist!
