Grilled Pork Tenderloin is one of the easiest meats to fix on the grill. It's tender, savory, and pairs well with all sorts of southern sides.
What Type of Dry Rub Should I Use?
There's nothing quite as delicious as Grilled Pork Tenderloin. 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 (ad). It's the perfect blend of subtle spice...with just a hint of coffee that adds intense flavor to whatever you're grilling.
How to Make It
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.
Why Do You Have To Let Meat Rest?
Take the tenderloin off the grill and let it rest for 10 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute into the meat. If you cut it too soon, you'll lose a lot of flavor.
Slice diagonally and serve plain, or with my Chimichurri Sauce which packs on the flavor. Be sure to grab the recipe to that sauce in the recipe card below!
