  • Teriyaki Marinade
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) ketchup
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) white vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper

    Mix all Teriyaki Marinade ingredients. Fold thin end of each pork tenderloin under so pork is an even thickness; secure with toothpicks. Place pork in resealable plastic food-storage bag or shallow glass or plastic dish. Pour marinade over pork; turn pork to coat with marinade. Seal bag or cover dish and refrigerate at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours, turning pork occasionally.

  • Tip 1
    Substitution: One 14 oz/398 mL can of sliced pineapple, drained, can be used in place of the fresh pineapple.
  • Tip 2
    Did You Know? : Indirect heat is used for grilling longer-cooking foods, such as pork tenderloin. Arrange coals around the edge of the grill, and place a drip pan in the centre under the area where the food will be grilled.
