When it's too nippy to fire up the barbie, stovetop-grill your way to a toasty, charred flavor.

How to Make It

Combine ginger, honey, juice, and soy sauce in a bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat, and coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle pork with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Add pork to grill pan; cook 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° or until desired degree of doneness, basting frequently with sauce. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

I consider myself to be an above average cook so I tried cooking on the stove anyway.... the honey will burn immediately! Unless you want to scrub burnt sugar out of a pan all night, try this on the grill!

Thank you to everyone for your advice on this recipe. Because there is still snow on our BBQ grill, I opted to bake the tenderloin rather than grill it on the stovetop and it was quite tasty. I let the tenderloin sit in the sauce to marinate for about an hour before I put it in the oven. I think it could be even better if it were marinated longer and also if it were put on the outdoor grill. Very yummy, great flavor.

My mistake in not paying attention to the photo and using some common sense. Of course the honey burned before the pork was done. Little flavor and too much mess on the grill pan. Served yams mashed with a bit of brown sugar & o.j.

Delicious! I seared on the stove but finished it in the oven. I made this with the bacon & leek r issotto on CL. Great combo.

As someone who doesn't really like pork this was delicous. The cooking was a bit off for me, I cooked it in the grill pan for the allotted time but it wasnt cooked through so I stuck it in a 400 oven for 35 minutes in a glass baking dish and threw the sauce over top. It was a delicous marinade. I served this with sauteed zucchini, cauliflower puree and shrimp stuffed mushrooms.

Read reviews and used this "sauce" as a marinade instead. Added 1/4-1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce for a kick. Served with Sour Cream Dill Potato Salad and sauteed spinach with garlic. We thought it was yummy. Grilled out instead of in so no smoke issues.

This was simply lacking in flavor. If I make it again I'll use the glaze as a marinade. Of course the pork was tender and cooking time was on point.

This was just ok. I used the basting sauce as a marinade and had the pork in the sauce for about 5 hours before grilling it on our Traeger BBQ. The meat came out moist and delicious but the flavors were lacking. There are many better CL pork recipes out there. I recommend Roast Pork Tenderloin with Plum Barbecue Sauce - only slightly more effort for a LOT more flavor.

Flavor was outstanding! I cooked on the grill rather than in a grill pan and it came out perfect. Depend on your meat thermometer and don't over cook! It makes all the difference!
