The Marinade

  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a plastic zipper bag.
  2. Add whole pork tenderloin to the marinade in the bag and zip closed.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, but overnight produces best flavor.
  4. When ready to grill, remove tenderloin from bag and discard leftover marinade.
  5. (For even more herb flavor, add some oregano and basil stems to the hot coals. If you are not using coals, just use herb garnish at end of cooking).
  6. Grill tenderloin for approximately 5 minutes per side (all four sides, equals 20 minutes total).
  7. Be sure to check that meat is cooked thoroughly.
  8. Garnish with chopped, fresh basil leaves.

Serve with barbequed baked potatoes, salad of your choice and crusty bread.
