Asian Pork Tenderloin with Coconut-Peanut Sauce

Asian Pork Tenderloin with Coconut-Peanut Sauce


  • Asian Pork Tenderloin with Peanut Sauce
  • Serves 4
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pork tenderloins


In a large bowl, whisk all the ingredients except the pork until smooth.

Trim the pork of excess fat and silverskin. Put the pork tenderloin in the bowl with the marinade and turn to coat. Let marinate for 10 to 20 minutes (or several hours or up to overnight in the refrigerator).

While the pork marinates, heat a gas grill with all burners on high or preheat oven to 425. Clean and oil the grate. Remove the tenderloin from the marinade, letting excess marinade drip back into the bowl (don’t discard the marinade). Grill the tenderloin with the lid down about 6 minutes each side or 20-25 minutes total. Transfer to a carving board and let rest for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour the marinade into a small saucepan and add 2 tablespoons water and bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. If the sauce seems too thick, thin it with 1 or 2 teaspoons water. Slice the pork and serve with the sauce on the side.
