Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin
HERB CRUSTED PORK TENDERLOIN
Fat Boys BBQ Recipe
2 pork tenderloins, approximately 1 lb. each
6 tablespoons Herbs de Provence
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 medium jalapeno pepper, ends, seeds and pith removed, minced very finely
6 oz. cranberry jelly
Trim any fat from tenderloin. Wash tenderloin under cold running water.
Dry tenderloin thoroughly with paper towels.
In a small dry bowl, mix all dry ingredients, herbs together. In a another small bowl, mix Worcestershire sauce and olive oil.
Rub tenderloin on all sides with Worcestershire sauce and olive oil mixture.
Rub tenderloins fully and firmly with dry herb mixture. Place coated meat in a ZIPLock type bag and refrigerate minimum of 4 to 6 hours.
Melt cranberry jelly in a pan or in microwave. Add minced Jalapeno pepper. Mix well together. Preheat pit, grill or broiler. Spray grill with non-stick spray. Indirect heat is important. We recommend starting meat on an open grill and finishing glaze on foil.
Cook meat about 8 minutes on each side over indirect heat. Turn tenderloin and brush with the jelly and grill for another 4 to 5 minutes to glaze. Remove to a warmed platter.
Notes: Take care to not overcook the meat, as it can become very dry very quickly.
Serve with a little jelly mixture on the side as a garnish.
