Grilled pork tenderloin with ginger glaze

Pork tenderloin is a delicate lean piece of meat with lots of flavour. Not the easiest piece to prepare. But when done right it can taste so good. The ginger glaze with this grilled pork tenderloin gives a somewhat oriental touch to this dish.

Servings 4 people


  • 2 pork tenderloins

For the glaze

  • 1 inch freshly ground ginger
  • 2 Tbsp fig vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • Roasted sesame seeds at taste


  1. Prepare your BBQ for a direct session at high temperature (+-200°C). Provide a direct and indirect zone. Place the coals on one side of the BBQ or use half a plate setter of your Kamado BBQ.
  2. Dab the pork tenderloin dry and season with coarse salt.
  3. Add a cube of smokewood between the coals for a smoky touch. Grill the pork tenderloin directly over the fire until you get a nice golden brown crust.

  4. Mix the ingredients for the glaze.
  5. Place the tenderloin on the indirect side until you get a core temperature of 58°C. Baste the pork tenderloin regularly with the glaze.

  6. Let the tenderloin rest for a while. Sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds to finish.

Have a nice meal!
