Teriyaki Marinade
cup vegetable oil
cup soy sauce
tablespoons ketchup
tablespoon white vinegar
teaspoon pepper
cloves garlic, finely chopped
pork tenderloins (about 3/4 pound each)
pineapple, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  1. Mix all Teriyaki Marinade ingredients. Fold thin end of each pork tenderloin under so pork is an even thickness; secure with toothpicks. Place pork in resealable plastic food-storage bag or shallow glass or plastic dish. Pour marinade over pork; turn pork to coat with marinade. Seal bag or cover dish and refrigerate at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours, turning pork occasionally.

  3. Remove pork from marinade; reserve marinade. Cover and grill pork over drip pan or over unheated side of gas grill and 4 to 5 inches from medium heat 25 to 30 minutes, brushing occasionally with marinade and turning once, until pork is slightly pink in center. Cut pineapple slices in half. Add pineapple to grill for last 2 to 4 minutes of grilling, brushing with marinade and turning once. Discard any remaining marinade.
  4. Remove toothpicks from pork. Cut pork across grain into thin slices. Serve with pineapple.
