Grilled Pork Tenderloin

There’s nothing quite as delicious as pork tenderloin on the grill. I love it when it gets that perfect char…which only takes about 20 to 25 minutes from start to finish.

But first, you have to show some love to the pork. 🙂

I’m a big fan of using a dry rub for pork tenderloin. My favorite seasoning is BBQ Rub with Coffee and Garlic from Trader Joe’s. It’s the perfect blend of subtle spice…with just a hint of coffee that adds intense flavor to whatever you’re grilling.

Sprinkle your favorite seasoning on a plain pork tenderloin and rub it down. Have some fun here…tenderloins just love to be pampered! Cover with aluminum foil, then let rest in the fridge until ready to grill.

Before it’s time to start cooking, brush the grill with olive oil to prevent sticking. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Grill the tenderloin for 20 to 25 minutes , turning frequently, until it reaches 145 degrees with a meat thermometer.

Take the tenderloin off the grill and let rest for 10 minutes before carving. Slice diagonally and serve plain, or with Chimichurri Sauce which packs on the flavor!

Grilled Pork Tenderloin is so versatile, you can serve it alongside a variety of veggies and sides. For a down home barbecue, it goes great with Taylor’s Collard Greens and Red Skin Potato Salad.

For a more upscale meal, pair Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Strawberry Pecan Salad and Garlic Mashed Potatoes.

No matter how you serve this dish, I promise it will be a big hit with your family and friends!
