In medium bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice, minced cilantro, brown sugar, jalapeno, garlic, grated ginger and sesame oil. Reserve 4 tablespoons soy mixture, set aside. Put remainder of soy mixture with tenderloin in a self-sealing plastic bag. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or as long as overnight.
Prepare grill with medium-hot fire. Remove pork from marinade; discarding marinade. Grill 8-10 minutes per side or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part reads 145 degrees F.
