A unique blending of sage, cumin, and other spices are used in this recipe. We 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 milliliters) olive oil

  • 1 shallot, chopped

  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons white wine

  • 3 leaves fresh sage

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional

For the Tenderloin:

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In blender or food processor, blend marinade ingredients.

  3. 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 the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.

  4. Prepare the charcoal grill, or if using gas, preheat to medium.

  5. Remove tenderloins from bag and place onto grill.

  6. Cook, turning occasionally, for 35 to 45 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 F.

  7. Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes.

  8. Slice into medallions and serve.

  9. Enjoy.
