Herb Basted BBQ Pork Tenderloin

Ingredients

3/4 cup red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cubed
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 boneless pork tenderloin

Directions

Combine the first eight ingredients in a saucepan and cook for 3 minutes or until the butter is melted.

Prepare your grill for medium heat and oil the grates.

Grill the pork tenderloins with the cover on for 18 to 20 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 150 degrees F. During cooking time baste with the herb sauce and turn occasionally.

Let the tenderloin roasts sit for 10 minutes. Residual cooking will bring the temperature to 160 degrees F.

If you would like an even deeper herb flavor you can let the tenderloin marinade in the sauce for 2 hours in the refrigerator.


Lemon Garlic Pork Tenderloin

This blend of tangy lemon and savory garlic mixes perfectly with the pork tenderloin. If you like lemon you’ll love this recipe!

Ingredients

2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (3/4 pound) pork tenderloin

Directions

Combine the oil, lemon juice, grated lemon peel, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper in a resealable bag. Add the pork tenderloin, seal the bag and turn to coat the meat well. Refrigerate the tenderloin 8 hours or overnight.

Drain off the marinade and discard it.

Prepare your grill for medium heat and oil the grates. Grill the tenderloin over the medium coals until the juices run clear and a meat thermometer reads 150 degrees F.

Let the tenderloin rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Residual cooking will bring the temperature to 160 degrees F.
