This recipe was developed by me for Smithfield, whom I have an ongoing relationship with. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for helping to support the brands that I love and make Very Culinary possible!
You know you’re spending
too much most of your time in the yard when your spouse says, “Should we just get a tent and sleep out here?”
The kids overhear you, and totally think you’re going to do it. Then for the next three days, you end up explaining to them why you’re not.
Ya, so that happened.
Anyway. I waited until June. But I can’t wait anymore.
Get your grills out!
You have to make this tenderloin. It’s another one of our favorites using Smithfield seasoned fresh pork.
Smithfield Seasoned Fresh Pork is available in a variety of cuts including loin filets and tenderloins. They are slow marinated in delicious seasonings, like Garlic & Herb, Mesquite, Peppercorn & Garlic, making the cooking process easier and faster, while still using 100% fresh, high quality ingredients. You can enjoy your family and friends, and not be stuck in the kitchen alone!
We’re so in love with their entire line. Seriously. So tender and tons of flavor, the kids don’t even ask to dip it in mayo. That’s huge.
I might even try to cook this over our fire pit. S’mores are so yesterday.
Prepare a grill to medium-high heat.
Remove tenderloin from marinade packet.
Oil grill grates and grill tenderloin, turning every few minutes on all sides, until a thermometer inserted into meat registers 145°, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and tent with foil; let rest 10 minutes.
While meat is resting, grill the onions. Drizzle each slice with olive oil and season both sides with salt and pepper, to taste. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until onion is tender and has begun to caramelize.
Cut tenderloin into thin slices and serve with the grilled onion and a dab of herb butter.
