Top 10 Pork Tenderloin Recipes

The Most Popular and Best Pork Tenderloin


Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorite meats to grill. Lean, tender, and loaded with flavor this is one of the most versatile cuts you can grill. The secret to a great grilled pork tenderloin is to start with a marinade. Being lean, it can dry out and a marinade protects the surface and helps to add flavor. Start the tenderloin on a hot fire to build a crust on the surface and to give it the great grilled flavor it deserves. Finish the pork over a low heat to get it to the level of doneness desired and to keep from overcooking the outside. These recipes are flavorful and are my favorites for a great grilled pork tenderloin.
