How To Grill Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin is the perfect grilling meat. We start by pounding out the pork into medallions. This tenderizes them and helps them to cook evenly.
Once your pork is pounded and marinated, get your grill heated to high. Because the pork medallions are so thin, they cook pretty quickly. Pork can dry out fast, so it works best to keep your grill hot to really get a sear on them.
Grill your pork tenderloin for 3-4 minutes on each side or until just slightly pink inside. Don’t worry, they will finish cooking while they rest. Serve your pork tenderloin with the mouthwatering sauce and enjoy!
What Goes With Pork Tenderloin
If you have leftover pork tenderloin, grab a piece of lettuce and make yourself a lettuce wrapped pork burger with a little bit of the creamy dijon sauce. It’s the perfect lunch!
I love serving pork tenderloin with just about anything, a quick salad or just grilled veggies! I already mentioned rosemary mushrooms, which can also be made on the grill. If you aren’t grilling your tenderloin, throw some roasted radishes in the oven while you bake your pork tenderloin.
Keep your dinner low carb with a cauliflower potato salad, or even just some of your favorite steamed veggies. You really can’t go wrong here!
