Indirect on the grill means to put the meat in the center of the grill and, on a gas grill, turn off the burners directly under the meat. On a charcoal grill place the charcoal on the sides of the grill so none of the charcoal is directly under the meat. Weber grills usually come with an accessory that will keep the charcoal in place or maybe a trip to the hardware store for an accessory. This is also a good way to cook chicken.
"Cook over indirect heat for 30 minutes."???? How do you do this on a grill?
Wow, great and easy! I baked mine at 350 for 45 minutes, added the bbq sauce, and then baked for another 15 minutes at 325. Came out perfect, moist, and delicious!
This recipe was fantastic! I rubbed the tenderloin with olive oil before I sprinkled it with the spices, and turned it often on the grill. My parents and I all LOVED it!
Ok, so I'm gonna sound like that 1980's Nicholas Cage movie Valley Girl, but OH My God! That like was totally awesome!!!
I have cooked tenderloin so many different ways and my hubby never likes it...ever. This was the best way to cook one, and the simplest! To have so few ingredients, it sure has the best flavor!! Thank you sooo much for this recipe and this will be the only way I ever cook tenderloin ever again.
This was great. I have always had fear of cooking on my gas grill using the indirect method. (I have a Ducane.) I really gave this a try and was so shocked at how nicely it worked, just like the recipe said. I did put it on the direct heat at the very end to get a little darker color on the coating. Texture was fabulous. If you are leary of using indirect method, give this a shot! Served it with a made-up recipe for pineapple fried rice that was very very good. At the end of the meal, I sliced up the leftover pork and mixed it into the rice for a nice lunch the next day.
This is the best and easiest pork tendeloin recipe yet! So tender! Just to add to the flavor I placed a foil packet of dry apple wood chips (not chunks) over the front burner and kept the grill temperature at 350 degrees. The tenderloin was at a perfect 160 degrees after the 45 minutes on the grill. There was a small piece left that we sliced thinnly and used in a salad the next day. So yummy - can't wait to try again.
Thanks for a great delicious and simple recipe, the best pork I have ever made. Cooked it indoors, convection oven at 375 abt 45 mins. Served with honey mustard bbq sauce, black beans, brown rice, all loved it.
