Grilled Pork Tenderloin Recipes

A Perfect Cut of Meat for the Grill

Lean, tender, and loaded with flavor, pork tenderloin is one of the most versatile cuts you can grill. The secret to a great grilled pork tenderloin is to start with a marinade. Being lean, it can dry out and a marinade protects the surface and helps to add flavor. Start the tenderloin on a hot fire to build a crust on the surface and to give it the great grilled flavor it deserves. Finish the pork over a low heat to get it to the level of doneness desired and to keep from overcooking the outside.
