Garlic Herb Grilled Pork Tenderloin

"This is the best pork loin I've ever eaten!"  Those are the words I heard from more than one person when I fixed this recipe.  My husband has pretty much requested that we never fix pork tenderloin any other way.  It was a very simple recipe, but it is sure to impress your guests!

Cooking Time: 45 Minutes
Yields: 6 Servings


3 lb pork tenderloin
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 TBSP rosemary
1 TBSP salt
2 TBSP ground black pepper

  1. Cut a horizontal slit in the pork tenderloin, leaving the halves attached.  Rub tenderloin with olive oil.
  2. Insert garlic into the slit and onto the fatty part of pork.  Press thyme and rosemary into slit.  Sprinkle tenderloin with salt and pepper.
  3. Wrap tenderloin in foil and place on grill on medium-high heat.  Cook approximately 30 minutes, turning half way through until a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees.

This looks yum - I will have try! I've been making pork loin recently with a marinade that has honey + orange juice in it - it's good, too, and so different from how I usually make it!
