Grilled Pork Tenderloin


Here comes another great protein recipe that is comparable to macros of a chicken breast...pork tenderloin! Lean, so easy to prepare, with such great flavor, and it goes well with lots of veggies and side dishes. 


Serving size: This recipe makes 8 (4 oz) servings 


Macronutrient Balance: 23g Protein / 6g Fat / 1g Carbohydrates 



Ingredients: 

  • 1 package of pork tenderloin (has two tenderloins in it) - approx 2 pounds total

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 4 garlic cloves - minced

  • 2 sprigs of rosemary - chopped

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp fine black pepper

Instructions:

  • In a large pan, rub the pork tenderloins with olive oil, garlic rosemary and seasonings and bring to room temperature. 

  • Turn on grill and bring the temperature to 500 degrees F.

  • Place pork tenderloin on the grill, cover and let cook for 4 minutes before flipping.

  • Rotate to the other side for an additional 3 minutes, and then the third side for an additional 2 minutes. 

  • Bring tenderloin up to a top grill rack and flip every 5 minutes.

  • Total cooking time is 30-35 minutes or until the internal temperature is at 140 (for medium). 

  • Remove from heat and cover with foil for 10 minutes before slicing. 

Note: The shape of a pork tenderloin is triangular, which is why in step 2 we rotate on all three sides to get nice grill marks and a good sear before moving to the top rack. The tenderloin will continue to "cook" when you take it off the grill as it rests and the temperature comes down.
