A unique blending of sage, cumin, and other spices are used in this recipe. I recommend grilling over charcoal, but gas works just as well. If so inclined, double the marinade recipe and set half aside for brushing onto the pork while it's cooking.
- For the Marinade:
- 1/3 cup/80 mL olive oil
- 1 shallot (chopped)
- 1 to 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 2 tablespoons/30 mL white cooking wine
- 3 leaves fresh sage
- 1 teaspoon/5 mL cumin
- 1 teaspoon/5 mL salt
- 1 teaspoon/5 mL paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon/1.25 mL white pepper
- Optional: 1/4 teaspoon/1.25 mL cayenne pepper
- For the Tenderloin:
- 2 medium sized pork tenderloins
Gather the ingredients.
In blender or food processor, blend marinade ingredients.
Place tenderloins into resealable plastic bag. Pour mixture onto pork, making sure it is well coated (this will be a thick marinade), seal bags and place into refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
Prepare the charcoal grill or if using gas, preheat to medium.
Remove tenderloins from bag and place onto grill.
Cook, turning occasionally, for 35 to 45 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 F.
Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
Slice into medallions and serve.
