Instructions

How to Grill Pork Tenderloin:

Grill at a medium-high temperature (400–425°F).
Pork tenderloins should have their silver skin removed and trimmed. Scratch everything with a fork. Apply 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil to both sides.

In a bowl, combine the seasonings. Rub the seasoning mixture all over the tenderloin, pressing firmly to help the seasoning stick.

After putting the tenderloin on the hot grates, cover it and grill it for about 14 minutes, turning it halfway through. You can also sear each side of the tenderloin for two minutes if it’s larger. Using an instant-read thermometer, grill until the center registers 145°F. Before slicing, remove and let rest for five to ten minutes on a chopping board.
