I miss you all so very much! But I did find a couple of minutes to blow off the stuff I'm supposed to be doing to sneak in and share this fabulous and easy pork tenderloin recipe with you. This size tenderloin will feed the four of us and provide plenty of leftovers, BUT, let 3 teenage girls serve themselves and me and my poor husband had to fight over a slice! Seriously, four thin slices were all that was left.
Perfect to cook for Mom this Sunday - hint, hint, HINT!
I guess this is about a 2 lb. pork tenderloin and by the way, this is a Smithfield pork tenderloin and I'm not going back to any other brands. This was completely trimmed of silver skin and fat; does it get any easier? If you do find another brand of pork tenderloin, be sure to cut off all of the silver skin so you won't wind up with a tough, chewy piece of meat.
In a shallow bowl, combine 2 tablespoons grill seasoning, 2 tablespoons honey, 1/4 cup soy sauce (Tamari is great in this), 2 teaspoons sesame oil, 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 2 scallions chopped, 2 cloves minced garlic and a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once combined, place the tenderloin in the marinade and let it sit out for about 10 to 15 minutes. Turn the tenderloin and let it sit for another 10 to 15 minutes.
Heat up your grill and place the tenderloin on the hot grates and let it cook for about 7 minutes over direct heat. turn and let it cook another 7 minutes over direct heat. Move the tenderloin to the other side of the grill and let it cook over indirect heat until thorough cooked. Brush baste with remaining marinade about ever 10 minutes.
You'll probably need to grill two of these because with one, there are no leftovers and that makes me sad.
Happy Mother's Day!!! Have a wonderful weekend!
