When you’re planning your next family get-together and searching for the perfect dish to serve, look no further than grilled pork tenderloin. This mouthwatering meal is a must-have this season, and with a Big Green Egg charcoal grill, you can effortlessly cook up a delectable masterpiece for the whole family to enjoy.
How to Prepare Pork Tenderloin on the Grill
- Two packs of Hatfield® Tuscan Herb Pork Tenderloin or Hatfield® Honey Garlic Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin.
To ensure a successful grilling experience, follow these simple steps:
- Start with a clean grill: Before you begin, make sure your grill grate is clean. Apply a light coating of olive oil to prevent sticking.
- Fire up your Big Green Egg: Set up your charcoal grill for direct cooking by adding natural lump charcoal to the firebox and lighting it. Open the top and bottom vents, allowing your Big Green Egg to reach the desired temperature (approximately 350°F or high heat).
- Prepare your pork tenderloin: Properly prepare the tenderloin by removing the silver skin, which is the tough connective tissue that doesn’t break down when cooked. Using a sharp fish fillet knife, gently slide the blade under the skin and peel off any unnecessary sections.
- Start cooking: Place the pork tenderloin on the grill, close the lid, and use the 7-6-5 method of grilling. Grill undisturbed for seven minutes, then flip the tenderloins and grill for an additional six minutes with the lid closed. For the final five minutes, close the vents completely and let the pork cook with the lid closed.
- Check the internal temperature: To ensure the pork is cooked to perfection, check the internal temperature. If the thickest part of the tenderloin reaches 145°F, it is safe to consume.
- Slice, rest, and serve: Allow the grilled pork to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing it into thick, juicy slices. Serve and savor the incredible flavors!
