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.


  • 2 medium sized pork tenderloins
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) olive oil
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) white cooking wine
  • 3 leaves of 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
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 mL) cayenne pepper (optional)

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 refrigerator for 1-2 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 35-45 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 F.
  7. Remove from heat, let rest for 5 minutes, slice into medallions and serve.
