Honey-Sesame Grilled Pork Tenderloin


  • 1/4 cup Sue Bee® Honey
  • 1/2 cup Beer
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 (3/4 lb) pork tenderloins
  • vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 4 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary


  • Combine Sue Bee® honey, beer, sesame seeds, Dijon mustard, black pepper and cloves; stir well.
  • Place pork in a heavy duty zip-top plastic bag, and pour mixture over pork; seal bag and shake until meat is well coated.
  • Marinate in the refrigerator overnight, turning bag occasionally.
  • Remove pork from marinade, reserving marinade.
  • Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-low to medium hot coals. I have a gas grill and spray the top rack with cooking spray before lighting the grill.
  • Place pork on rack; grill, covered, 30 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part reads 160 F, turning often and basting with marinade (I turn and baste every 5-10 minutes).
  • Let stand 10 minutes.
  • Slice diagonally across grain into thin slices and garnish if desired.
