Brian's Slow-Grilled Pork Tenderloin

This is one of the things we had for dinner this week. We got the pork tenderloin at Costco. One of our favorite seasonings for meat (beef, chicken and pork) is Cavender's Greek Seasoning. An old friend introduced it to us. I was skeptical at first. Greek seasoning? Let me tell you - it's SO good. Very much worth a try. I recently got some at Walmart. Here's a photo so you know what you're looking for.

Anyway - we were interested in seeing what new idea we could come up with for the meat tonight. This is what Brian concocted and I wanted to share it with you. It's very juicy and I'll be keeping it so we can do it again soon.

Brian's Slow-Grilled Pork Tenderloin

2-3 lbs. Pork Tenderloin
Cavender's Greek Seasoning
1/3 - 1/2 c olive oil
6 T Worcestershire sauce

Generously season the pork with the greek seasoning. Place in ziploc with the olive oil and worcestershire sauce. Allow to marinade in the fridge for about 2-3 hours.

Turn your grill on low (approx 300 degrees).
Spray a double layer of foil with cooking spray. Wrap the tenderloin and the marinade loosely inside the foil so the marinade can simmer around the meat. Place on the grill and cook until 130-140 internal temp. Remove the meat from the foil and place it directly on the grill. Continue cooking until greater than an internal temp of 160. The farther you go past 160, the more dry the pork will be careful!

We sliced the pork and served it with whole grain rolls, fresh broccoli and a fruit salad made with fresh strawberries and nectarines. The meat was so juicy and totally wonderful just on it's own. It was also fabulous inside the rolls with a little fresh butter. My kids scarfed it down. :)
