Here at home we have the capability to grill year round, but the desire to stand outside freezing my buns off in the season that shall not be named is, shall we say, lacking. That said, I welcome grilling season and it’s sizzling suppers requiring nearly no clean up with open arms, and a cold drink in hand.
Last weekend, as I was cooking an unbelievably juicy grilled pork tenderloin, the urge for a frosty beverage kicked in. What can I say, burning your knuckle hairs over a hot flame when it’s 85 degrees outside does that to a girl. I opened the sliding door into the kitchen, popped my head in, and was about to ask Ben for something to drink when I saw that he already had a cold, hard cider in his outstretched hand. Does that man know me or does he know me?
The cider went perfectly with the grilled pork tenderloin I was cooking at the time. As the name implies, pork tenderloin becomes unbeliveably juicy and tender once seared over a hot and high flame. Like, giving steak a run for its money, juicy and tender! Plus it grills up in under 15 minutes.
I’ve tested the method for grilling pork tenderloin countless times over the past month and it works every single time. Without fail. Seared and sizzling outsides, juicy and tender insides. NO pans to clean, NO turning on the oven – just pure, easy, deliciousness.
When I was growing up pork had to be cooked to 160 degrees which, combined with my Dad’s fondness for well-done meat, meant each pork chop, pork tenderloin, and pork roast we ate felt like chewing on a mouthful of sawdust. Here in the present though, pork only needs to be cooked to a tender 140 degrees. Read: melt in your mouth.

Grilled pork tenderloin is also a favorite of mine because it’s an extremely affordable cut of meat. In my area, it usually sells for $3.99/lb and a 1-1/2lb cut generously feeds Ben, Lincoln, and myself. Pair with grilled vegetables and a baked potato or rice, and you have an extremely wallet-friendly meal.
I hope you give this grilled pork tenderloin a try – I can almost guarantee it will become a new summer favorite!

The rub and sauce are a very nice combination, this is a recipe I will be fixing again. I made no changes to the recipe.
I made this with out the chile powder (because I didn't have any on hand) and on an electric grill to boot. And it is still a keeper!!
Very, very good. I served it with a simple mixed green and toasted pine nut salad with lemon vinaigrette, and CL's spicy sweet potato wedges. I cooked the pork for 3 minutes (flipping each minute) over the coals, on a med-hi grill (3-5 second hand count) and then finished on the cool side for 15 minutes, with the grill covered, flipping once. For the sauce, cook closer to medium, lest you burn the finely chopped bacon and it's frond, and have ALL the ingredients lined up, measured out, and ready to go before starting it. My only slight issue is that the sauce is tangier than I expected I was expecting something more like honey mustard. That said, when dabbed on the slices of tenderloin, it works wonderfully with the spice rub on the pork.
The 4 Simple Steps to Mastering Grilled Pork Tenderloin
When cooking for the family, grilled pork tenderloin is hard to beat. This cut of meat is quick and easy to prepare, plus its an affordable choice that tastes like something from a fancy restaurant. Learn how to grill pork tenderloin with this easy guide.
On the grilling spectrum between the simplicity of burgers off the grill and the fancy factor of beef tenderloin, there&aposs a sweet spot: pork tenderloin. This cut of meat is affordable and simple to cook yet sure to bring on the "wows" that every cook loves to hear. Pork tenderloin is very customizable in that you can flavor it any way you like with marinades or rubs, and it&aposs equally delicious served alongside grilled vegetables or grilled fruit. Learn a few simple secrets (like using the indirect grilling method and letting the pork rest after cooking for the ultimate juiciness), and you&aposll make perfect grilled pork tenderloin the first time and every time.
Almost any gas grill will do. We want a grill surface temperature of 450 ° to a maximum of 500 ° . For me, I use a super-duper Weber that can get very hot, and that will be a small amount over 50%. It will be at about 75% on most gas grills, and an el-cheapo may be close to max.
Investment of $10 in a grill surface thermometer is always a good idea. DO NOT look at the thermometer on the hood of your grill it is not even close.
For help on grill surface temperature, please see my A Beginners Guide to Grill Temperature on a Gas Grill.
Charcoal should be fine. Just don't crank up the heat all the way and watch the temperature.
Of course, preheat, clean, and brush with vegetable oil.
Smoked Pork Tenderloin
As I mentioned above, smoked pork tenderloin is extremely easy to make. Truly, ease is the name of the game with pork tenderloin. You don’t have to do a lot for it to turn out awesome. It’s a very lean cut of pork , and you can really have fun with the flavor profiles you use when smoking.
When cooking pork tenderloin, I find that smoking it is a great way to cook such a lean cut of meat. Smoking it low and slow adds flavor without needing a ton of fat in the meat (perfect for tenderloin!). Also, pork tenderloin is readily available at the grocery store and constantly going on sale. If you keep an eye out, you’ll likely find some for a great price.
My preferred wood of choice to use when cooking pork tenderloin is always apple. Apple and pork go together like peanut butter and jelly, and apple wood adds the perfect flavor compliment to the pork.

Pressure Cook Only 3 Minutes
After we&rsquove deglazed the bottom of the pot, we add some Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke to the chicken broth. Then we place the pork tenderloin right into the liquid, secure the lid, make sure vent is set to &ldquosealing&rdquo, and pressure cook on high pressure (manual on some cookers) for only 3 minutes. Yes, just 3 minutes. Then let the pressure naturally release. The NPR will take about 12-15 minutes.
When cooking in complete and pressure has naturally released, remove the pork and set on a plate for 5 minutes before slicing.
