  1. In a small sauce pan, mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, and jam over low heat until sugar has dissolved. Reserve 1/4 cup of sauce for basting the tenderloin while grilling. Combine remaining sauce with soda in a large plastic resealable bag; place meat in bag, and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat grill for medium heat.
  3. Lightly oil preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook tenderloin for 15 to 20 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  4. Remove meat from grill, and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into 1/4 inch thick medallions.

I don't think we are picky eaters but I found this just made the meat taste like pop, no one liked this in the family. I used grape pop. Will not be making this again. michele, ontario canada

Loved it....but made a few changes the second time. I find cola works better than fruit-flavored sodas. Fruity ones impart TOO much of THEIR flavor. I also cut the brown sugar in half. The sod...

We used Coke instead of a fruit soda. We had no problem finding the plum jam; it right there in the supermarket with all the other jellies and jams. This was great! We made it for Christmas E...

My husband loved it; I thought it was okay. But I baked it instead of grilling it (350 for 45 minutes) Definitely need a meat thermoter for this one...or cook it less than 45 minutes. It is v...

This is a great summertime BBQ recipe because you can do most of it ahead of time. I used Dr. Brown's Black Cherry Soda for the marinade and did it the day before. The glaze gets nice and cris...

I thought this was good, not great. No one else in my family cared for it. It tasted exactly like blackcherry soda. I marinated overnight. we couldn't taste anyother flavors. My husband pile...

Wonderful! I made this for my mother-in-law's birthday and my husband was grilling tenderloin for the first time. Everyone loved the moist flavor. I used plum preserves instead of the jam. We ...

Had this for lunch today and my husband and I both loved it. Very tasty and incredibly tender! Will definitely be making this one again.
