Grilled Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin is sold in strips (the tenderloin) of about a pound each. This is 4 generous servings. Remove the 'silver skin" with a sharp knife for even cooking. The meat can be marinated in your favorite marinade. Our favorite recipe is to rub the prepared tenderloin with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Grill for 2 1/2 minutes on each side for a total of 10 minutes. Remove from grill and tent with foil for 10 minutes. Internal temperature should be 150 degrees. There will still be pink in the middle, this is OK. Resist the urge to overcook. Cooked correctly this meat can be cut with a fork.
We served it to our son Paul, he said he wanted it for every meal of his visit. It is that good. Serve it with your favorite dipping sauce, honey mustard is good. Or just enjoy it plain, it really doesn't need anything.
