This Adobo-style Grilled Pork Tenderloin is so simple and flavorful, it will become a go-to at your house! Marinated in garlic, vinegar and soy sauce, it can be prepared on the grill or in the oven. The marinade also works beautifully on turkey tenderloin and chicken!
Stir together garlic, cider vinegar, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a small bowl. Marinate the pork for at least 20 minutes, or, ideally, overnight. See notes.
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Sear the tenderloins on all sides, then grill for about 20-30 minutes, rotating every 10 minutes, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees. Let it rest about 5-10 minutes before slicing.
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Heat canola oil in a large, heavy saute pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add pork, and brown all over, about 4 minutes.
Transfer pan to oven. Roast pork, turning occasionally, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees, about 20 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board, and try to let it rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.
Soy Sauce: I like Silver Swan Soy Sauce, which can be found at most Asian markets.Pressed for time? No worries! When I'm in a time crunch, I like to use a fork to poke wholes into the pork tenderloin, which helps the marinade penetrate the meat.
