Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin is an easy and healthy pork dish that has tons of flavor from a savory marinade made with plenty of garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. You could also add a touch of honey or brown sugar for a sweet and savory marinade.

After lots of experimenting, I finally found an easy, almost fool proof way for cooking pork tenderloin on the grill. It's called the 8-7-6 method and comes from the genius chefs over at Fine Cooking. After marinating the pork, you will first cook the grill for 7 minutes on the first side and then 6 minutes on the second side. Then to finish, you turn off the grill and let the pork continue to cook for 5 minutes untouched. The result is pretty much perfect pork every time.
