Pork tenderloin is a lean boneless piece of meat that is usually sold in packages of two. Here, we’ve prepared both tenderloins with a garlic-rosemary rub, which gives a blast of flavor and forms a nice crust on this tender meat.


3 tablespoon oil, olive, extra-virgin
3 clove(s) garlic chopped
1 small shallot(s) chopped

1 tablespoon rosemary, fresh minced
2 whole pork, tenderloin (1 3/4 pounds total), trimmed
salt to taste

For garlic rub:
1Puree oil, garlic, shallot and rosemary in blender or food processor until smooth, scraping down jar of blender as needed.
For pork: :
2Heat grill to high; lightly oil grate. Pat tenderloins dry with paper towel; sprinkle with salt. Using your hands, rub tenderloins with garlic mixture. Place on grill until browned on three sides; about 4 minutes per side. Turn to final side of loins; grill 3 minutes, until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part registers 145F. Meat should be slightly pink in center. Transfer to cutting board; cover with foil and let rest 5 minutes. (The meat will finish cooking during this resting time.) Slice crosswise into 1" thick pieces.

Tip: Cover the grill during cooking if using a gas grill. Leave uncovered if using charcoal, and move tenderloin to a cooler section of the grill for 2 additional minutes at the end of cooking time.
