  • 1 3 lb Pork Tenderloin Can be 1 or 2 pieces
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Dry Rub Use your favorite
  • Mixed Vegetables to grill Optional


  • Brush olive oil all over the pork tenderloins, then season with your favorite dry rub and about 2 tsp each salt and pepper, if your dry rub doesn't have much salt.
  • Optional, also cut up some of your favorite vegetables to grill, and toss with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, and grill alongside your pork tenderloin.
  • Place pork on an outdoor or indoor grill at medium high heat, close the lid and allow to grill on one side for about 10-12 minutes.
  • Flip the pork over and grill for an additional 5-10 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches at least 145 degrees.
  • Remove from the grill and cover with tin foil, and allow to rest for at least 10 minutes. This will seal in the juices and allow the internal temperature to rise to about 160 degrees.
  • Slice on a diagonal and serve alongside your favorite side dish and grilled vegetables.


Pork tenderloin usually comes in 2 pieces, but sometimes, especially if you purchase from a warehouse store like Costco, they will come in 1 large piece. The cooking times are for 2 smaller pieces, so please adjust accordingly if you are using 1 large 3-4 lb pork tenderloin.
Also note that the 2 pieces often are a bit uneven. If this is the case, they will most likely have different cooking times. You may have to pull the smaller piece off the grill first, and let the larger piece cook for 3-5 minutes longer. 
You don't want undercooked pork, so make sure you get the pork to at least 145, and then cover it and let it rest. I have found when I grill the pork all the way to 160, it ends up drying out, so I like pulling it off early, and letting it come to temperature off the grill. This produces a much juicier piece of pork.
