Saucy Grilled Pork

Until about a year ago I thought that cooking pork on the grill was weird, but after trying a few recipes suggested by some friends I quickly changed my mind.  This recipe could be done with pork chops but I think that pork tenderloin is much more likely to be tender and juicy.  This recipe was adapted from one that I made a long time ago that used most of these ingredients to create a rub for a whole pork tenderloin.  I decided to turn it into a marinade and slice into pieces for less cook time.  I made the entire meal on the grill which made for a super easy clean up!  I made green beans and potatoes in foil packs- no additional pots and pans!

  • 1 lb Pork Tenderloin cut into Medallion pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Cup Catilina Dressing
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
Serves 4

In a small bowl combine all ingredients except pork and mix well.
Take each piece of pork and give it a gentle pound with your fist to slightly flatten it.  Pour marinade mixture over pork and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
 Preheat grill.  Sear each side of the meat.  Then grill until desired internal temp.  Mine took about 5 mins on each side.
