Step by Step Instructions

Grilled Pesto Tenderloin Recipe

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium. Grill tenderloins over indirect heat about 25 to 30 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Pork is done when internal temperature reaches 155°F and center is barely pink. Move tenderloins over to direct medium heat for last 3 minutes to crisp pancetta. Allow meat to rest for 10 minutes; then snip strings with scissors, and remove them. Cut tenderloins in thin slices on bias, and serve warm.

Step 2

In a small bowl, combine rub ingredients. Trim any excess fat and skin from tenderloins, and spread them evenly with rub, pressing spices into the meat. Cut six 12-inch pieces of cotton string, three for each tenderloin. Wrap tenderloins with slices of pancetta, and secure pancetta with string. Allow to rest at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling.
