This Grilled Pork Tenderloin was my attempted break of a weeknight dinner rut. Success was complete, but temporary. We loved the recipe so much, I made the mustard pork two nights in a row!
A tasty hazard of writing a food blog is that we are eating something new every week, but the recipes are not always savory.
Some weeks are focused almost entirely on desserts, so instead of our refrigerator being filled with leftover Cheesy Corn Quinoa Casserole, it’s stocked with cookies and cake.
Delicious? Yes. Dinner appropriate? Questionable.
I challenged myself to try something new for dinner.
This Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin was such a hit and such a nice break from the usual, I decided to try grilling pork tenderloin instead.
About This Easy Pork Recipe
The grilled pork tenderloin is also incredibly simple and incredibly delicious. The marinade combines two of my favorite flavors, Dijon mustard and pure maple syrup.
The mustard is zippy, the maple is sweet, and together they make for a juicy, flavorful grilled pork tenderloin.
If you are new to pork tenderloin, I highly recommend it. It’s an incredibly lean cut and, while I do love my chicken recipes, it’s a refreshing alternative that’s still healthy.

What to Serve with Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin is ultra versatile and will pair with any of your favorite sides. Here are a few ideas of what else you could serve with it:
- Veggies. If you want even more veggies, these Instant Pot Mashed Sweet Potatoes or Sautéed Brussels Sprouts would be delicious options.
- Salad. Brussels Sprouts Slaw is a tasty salad to serve with pork.
- Creamed Corn. I love the idea of serving this pork dish with a side of Crock Pot Creamed Corn.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin
- Place pork in a large, sturdy ziptop bag. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the garlic, apple cider vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Seal the bag tightly, then “squish” the bag so that the pork is coated on all sides. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 2 hours or 1 day, turning occasionally. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes prior to grilling.
- When ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium (about 350 degrees F). Brush the grill with oil. Remove the pork from the marinade, shake off excess. Discard the marinade and bag. Cover and cook, turning once every two minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F, 12 to 15 minutes.
- Remove the tenderloin to a plate, cover, and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
