Smoky Grilled Pork Tenderloin

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 pork tenderloins (3-5 pounds total), trimmed of excess fat or silver skin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse, kosher salt
  • Pinch of coarsely ground black pepper


In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, lime juice, brown sugar, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. The mixture will be thick and pasty.
Rub the mixture over the pork and place the meat in a shallow dish. You can grill right away, but for more flavor, cover the dish and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
Preheat an outdoor grill (see note for alternate cooking methods) to medium-high heat (I use 375 degrees F on my pellet grill).
Grill the pork tenderloin for 10 minutes, flip and continue to cook until an internal temperature at the thickest part of the meat registers 145 degrees F on an instant read thermometer, about 8-10 minutes.
Remove the pork from the grill and tent with aluminum foil for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
