Memorial Day Recipe – Grilled Pork Tenderlion
I'm looking forward to a quite peaceful Memorial Day weekend. For the last couple years my family and I have packed up the car and drove a few hours to celebrate Memorial Day with friends and family.This year, we are staying home, blowing up a plastic pool and throwing some pork on the grill. No packing, no traveling, just relaxing at HOME. I love the grill so that is something I am looking forward to.
I cooked an awesome pork tenderloin last week on the grill that merits a recipe share.
I started my generous amount of charcoal and let the coals turn completely white. ( a very important step to avoid uneatable meat) While waiting on the coals to get ready, I sliced the tenderloin length wise and seasoned it with salt, pepper and McCormick's steak seasoning and placed it in the 'fridge.
I made up a mopping sauce to bath the pork with while it cooked: 4 tablespoons of vinegar, 4 tablespoons spicy mustard, 4 tablespoons honey and a quarter cup of Dale's
When the coals were ready I out the pork on the grill and let it sear on both sides and closed the lid. Every 5 or 6 min, I mopped the sauce over it and the sugar in the honey start to caramelize! I used a meat thermometer to insure the pork was over 170°.
When the proper temp was achieved, I took the pork and covered it in foil for 10 min to let the juices soak back in.
The best pork tenderloin I have ever had. period. I will attempt this again over the Memorial Day Weekend! if you try it, let me know how it turns out!
