Maple Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Sundays are designated grilling days in the summer. If it’s not burgers, it’s usually beef, pork or chicken that I’ve marinated overnight. I had pork tenderloin in the freezer, so I  found an old copy of this Maple Grilled Pork Tenderloin recipe in one of my binders that sounded scrumptious. This sweet, salty, tangy, herby combination of flavors worked perfectly with pork.

I sauteed some apples and added our favorite crispy smashed potatoes to the menu. Tom stopped by for dinner and the  male carnivores were all pleased with their meat and potatoes. This pork marinade will become a regular on our meal rotation!

These potatoes always disappear in a red hot minute when they’re on on menu. You simply boil up new potatoes till they’re tender, let them cool, smash them and then roast to crispy perfection. A bit of oil, butter and kosher salt is involved, too! I hope your menu will include one or both of these fabulous dishes.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin Recipe

The first time I made pork tenderloin, I was a young mom with two toddlers. I had purchased a couple from the meat market, seasoned them with salt and pepper and roasted them in the oven. Boy, they were not impressive. Extremely bland with little fat and little flavor!

From then on, I made certain to at least marinate this cut a few hours or up to overnight. Besides pork tenderloin, this fabulous, flavorful pork marinade would be fabulous on a pork loin roast or pork chops. I’d definitely marinate the former overnight to ensure the flavors have a chance to be absorbed by the meat. Definitely grill when possible. I love the smokiness imparted from a charcoal grill. Divine!
