Fruity Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Sharing is caring!

This is my favorite summer marinade for pork tenderloin. Use any of your favorite fruit sodas–black cherry, grape, raspberry, etc. Also great served cold on a green salad.


  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup plum jam
  • ¾ cup black cherry soda
  • 1 (1 pound) pork tenderloin


In a small sauce pan, mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, and jam over low heat until sugar has dissolved. Reserve 1/4 cup of sauce for basting the tenderloin while grilling. Combine remaining sauce with soda in a large plastic resealable bag; place meat in bag, and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

Preheat grill for medium heat.

Lightly oil preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook tenderloin for 15 to 20 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Remove meat from grill, and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into 1/4 inch thick medallions.
