Asian-Style Marinated Grilled Pork Tenderloin


Every summer I get just a little bit closer to mastering the grill. It’s like I’m slowly accruing experience points and when I made this pork tenderloin, it felt like a level up.

In fact, I think I even have to make it less so in the future, you know, so my 3 year old will actually eat it.
