In the summertime, we use our grill ALL the time. It is a great way to keep the heat out of the kitchen, and flames help to add a punch of flavor! This recipe for juicy grilled pork tenderloin is a great option for those wanting a healthy option for grilling, and a welcome departure from the standard hamburgers and hot dogs. It’s also an easy way to count on the 21 Day Fix!
If you’re a newbie griller – have no fear. Don’t let this intimidate you. One of my favorite tips I always try to incorporate is to not over-flip your meat. This will cause the meat to lose some of the juice (plus you can lose some of those awesome grill marks). The best way to tell that the meat is done is by using a digital meat thermometer (Amazon). For pork, your magic number is going to be 145 degrees.
21 Day Fix
1 Red Container uses 5 ounces. Since you can’t really fit the tenderloin into the container, it would be easier to weigh it on a kitchen scale (Amazon). If you’re new to using a scale, I like to put a dish on the scale, reset the scale to zero, then put the meat on the dish.
For this recipe, 5 ounces = 1 red and 1 teaspoon
