Grilling Pork Tenderloin: A Simple Process

Grilling pork tenderloin is a straightforward process that requires close attention due to its quick cooking time. Follow these steps for a perfectly grilled pork tenderloin:

Marinate Your Meat: Combine the marinade ingredients in a gallon-sized zip-top bag and add the pork. Seal the bag and allow the meat to marinate for 1-8 hours.

Grill the Pork: Preheat your grill to 400 degrees F and place the tenderloin directly on the grates. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side before turning. Continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. Let the tenderloin rest for 5-10 minutes.

Make the Glaze: Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat, whisk in the flour, and cook until well combined. Pour 2 cups of the reserved marinade into the skillet and whisk. Simmer the sauce for 3-5 minutes.

Slice, Glaze, and Serve: Slice the grilled pork tenderloin against the grain into 1/2-inch slices. Spoon the beer and mustard glaze on top of the tenderloin before serving.

Grilling Time: Watch Closely for Perfection

When grilling pork tenderloin over medium-high heat, it takes about 8-12 minutes to cook. Keep a close eye on it to avoid overcooking. If needed, move the tenderloin to a cooler zone on the grill to finish cooking without excessive charring.
