Here's a very simple way to make pork tenderloin that is just melt-in-your-mouth good. We've had it many times and the whole family loves it.
5 garlic cloves, finely minced or crushed
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 1/2 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
2 pork tenderloins (about 1 1/4 pounds each)
1. Stir together garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and olive oil.
2. Coat the tenderloin with the rub.
3. Let marinate for anywhere from 30 minutes up to 6 hours.
4. Sear the tenderloin on all 4 sides.
5. Grill until the internal temperature is about 160, rotating every 10 minutes.
6. Let it rest for 10 minutes before serving.
This has become a family favorite and is great when served with sour cream. The recipe was from the Kitchen Confidante website.
When grilling the tenderloin, I seared it on high heat on the grill, then moved the tenderloin pieces to the top rack in the back of the grill. Then I left only the front burner on to cook it indirectly. It took longer, but was extremely tender and juicy.
