Tandoori Pork Tenderloin

This tandoori pork recipe uses an Indian-inspired yogurt marinade to keep the pork both flavourful and juicy, without being spicy—so kids will love it.


  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

  • 1 tsp curry paste

  • 1 tsp grated garlic

  • 1 tsp grated ginger

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 lb. pork tenderloin


  • Combine yogurt, curry paste, garlic, ginger and salt. Spread over pork and let stand about 20 min at room temperature. Remove pork from marinade (but keep a good layer of yogurt on meat).

  • Heat barbecue on high. Grill pork for 16 to 18 min, turning every 4 min, until evenly browned on the outside and the thickest part has reached an internal temperature of 145 to150°F. Let rest 5 min before slicing.

  • Serve on toasted buns with Peach and Tomato Salsa.
