I am continuing to learn the grilling process. Sweet Harold is enjoying the break from grilling and encourages each new attempt I make. Next time you're grocery shopping, please take a look and see if your store sells Smithfield Marinated Pork Tenderloins. If not, PLEASE ask your meat department to stock them. You can grill them, cook in the oven, or crock pot. So simple. Open the package and place on the grill!
Tonight I chose the Garlic and Herb version. I let the tenderloin come to close to room temperature.
Preheat the grill on high. Lower the temperature to a consistent 400 - 425 degrees. Place the tenderloin on the hot grill grates and close the lid. Let cook 5 - 8 minutes or until, when attempting to lift the tenderloin from the grill grates with tongs, it releases easily.
Turn 1/4 turn, close lid and repeat. Now it's time to turn the tenderloin over and repeat the process.
When the tenderloin reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees, remove from grill. Place the tenderloin on a tray and cover with foil for about 10 minutes and allow the pork to rest before slicing. This will allow the juices to redistribute throughout the meat.
Slice on an angle and serve immediately.
Doesn't that look absolutely delicious !?!
