Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin with Ginger Raspberry Glaze

Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin with Ginger Raspberry Glaze is an amazing addition to any barbecue. The flavors of soy, ginger, and raspberry are amazing.

This is a recipe I got from a former business partner from chinablue.  His family fled Shanghai during the cultural revolution and brought some amazing recipe that formed the foundation of chinablue’s sauces.

First time I made this recipe my husband was sure he was going to hate it…he doesn’t like licorice, but this has turned out to be a family favorite.

Let me know what you think.

These amazing flavors come together by marinating overnight.  There are a lot of ingredients in this recipe but it is totally worth it + you can make it the night before so it's super easy just to toss this on the grill for your barbecue.  This is truly amazing and a family favorite.
