Zesty Lemon Pepper Pork Tenderloin March 16, 2011

While at Plumb’s Market last Friday for my food demo I took advantage of their meat sale.  I purchased some sea food as well as one of my “staples” pork loin.  Since the weather finally warmed up today and we actually saw sunshine, I decided to uncover the grill to make my pork loin!

The recipe is very simple and you can change things up anyway you like but believe me the lemon pepper really is a nice change for the loin.   Enjoy!  Comments/questions  1lowfatdiva@gmail.com

Zesty Lemon Pepper Pork Tenderloin

1 tsp Lemon Pepper (I use McCormicks)

1/2 tsp. paprika (tried the recipe with smoked paprika and did not care for it)

1 tsp. ground garlic

1 tsp. dried onion

1/2 tsp. basil (or you could use dill)

1 Tlb. lemon juice

2 – 3 pounds of Tenderloin

Make this into a paste and spread onto your pork tenderloin.  Let sit at room temp for about 20-30 min. providing you are not in a warm climate.  If your weather is warm then put in frig for 20 min. and then remove to sit at room temp for 15 min.

Place on grill with meat thermometer and grill until temp is at 145-150.  Remove from heat, cover with foil and let rest for at least 15 min.The pork will continue to cook while it’s resting.  The temp will go up to 155-160 and should be perfect 🙂
