Recipe Steps

1: Make the orange-soy marinade: Combine all the marinade ingredients except the brown sugar and whisk to combine.

2: Place the tenderloin tips in the marinade and marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Drain the meat. Strain the marinade into a saucepan, discarding any solids, and add the brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the marinade is reduced.

3: Heat your grill to high. Scrape and oil the grates. Place the tips on the hot grill grate and turn as each side develops color.

4: Baste with the orange-soy sauce. Total cooking time is about 6 minutes.
