A simple, delicious way to cook pork tenderloin - tender and juicy.
Grilled Pork Tenderloin
- Serves: 4
- Complexity: easy
- 3 tbsp kosher salt
- 6 tbsp sugar
- 1 cups hot water
- 1 cups cold water
- 3 tbsp fresh rosemary
- 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 lb)
Dissolve the sugar and salt in a large bowl of hot water, then add the cold water to cool the mixture. Place the tenderloin to the bowl and cover, then refrigerate until the tenderloin is well seasoned, about 1 hour. After removing the tenderloin from the refrigerator, rinse well and dry.
Heat your gas or charcoal grill until it is hot. Place the tenderloin on the hot grill or directly over the hot coals and cook until it is well browned on all sides. This should take about 2 minutes per side. Make sure that you do not overcook, since this will dry them out. Check the temperature, the tenderloin should be at about 145 degrees. Remove the tenderloin from the grill and allow to rest for a few minutes. Slice into 1 inch thick rounds and serve.
