Pork tenderloin lends itself very nicely to flavourful marinades, and our combination of Piri Piri seasoning with Peri Peri Grilling sauce packs a punch!

This tenderloin is very easy to make – marinate overnight in the fridge for the most flavour, then grill just before dinner. It is a quick and versatile dish that makes a great entrée, and if there are leftovers, slice thinly and make sandwiches for lunch or your next picnic.

Tip: when prepping tenderloins, we like to remove the tips, since they tend to overcook on the grill. Save those to make a stir-fry or some quick tacos.


  1. Using a small sharp knife, remove all silver skin from tenderloin. Trim tip and reserve for another use.
  2. In pyrex or plastic ziptop bag combine piri piri seasoning, lemon zest, juice and olive oil. Add tenderloin and make sure it is covered with marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to overnight.
  3. Remove tenderloin from marinade and let rest at room temperature while you prepare the grill.
  4. Preheat the grill over medium heat until temperature reaches 500°F, then lower dials to medium high. Lightly grease grates and grill tenderloin for 1-1/2 - 2 minutes per side, closing the lid between flips. During the last 5 minutes, brush tenderloin with peri peri grilling sauce. Cook tenderloin for 12-15 minutes total, depending on size, until internal temperature reaches 155°F.
  5. Remove tenderloin from grill and place on tray, tent loosely with foil and let rest for 10 minutes, carry over temperature will increase to 160°F. Slice and serve.
