Grilled Pork Tenderloin


Here is an easy recipe that you can make at the last minute.  I know because we did this week!  I bought pork tenderloins last week because they were buy-one-get-one free.  At 4:00 when I still didn’t know what I was going to do for dinner I turned to the tenderloin!  I found the recipe several years ago on “howstuffworks”.  We have modified it a bit to fit our family and it gets four smiley faces each time.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Mix together for a rub:

  • 1 T garlic salt
  • 3 T fresh chopped basil (or 1 T dried)
  • 1 T dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 t cracked black pepper
  • 1 1/2 t dried rosemary
  • 1 t paprika

Prepare your grill for grilling.

Sprinkle the rub evenly all over the tenderloin (we had 2 lbs).

Grill until done (internal temp should be about 150/155 degrees).

We served with our ever present sides….fruit salad and steamed broccoli.
