A GREAT tip on how to grill pork tenderloin. You’ll never go back to baking it after you try the 7-6-5 method. This seasoning method produces a super flavorful tenderloin, too.
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1¼ pounds pork tenderloin (Here’s where we get meat that we trust)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Make It Now:
- Preheat the grill to 450°F degrees.
- Combine the garlic powder, dried oregano, ground cumin, ground coriander, dried thyme, and salt in a small bowl. Then, rub the seasoning in on all sides of the pork tenderloin.
- Place your seasoned tenderloin on the grill and let it sizzle with the lid shut for 7 minutes.
- Flip and shut the lid. Then, let it cook for 5-6 more minutes.
- Now turn the heat off, and leave the lid closed for 4-5 minutes. Tip: According to the USDA, the pork tenderloin needs to reach 145 degrees internally to be safe to eat. So we recommend using a meat thermometer inserted at the thickest part at this point to check that it’s 140-145°F, as it will carry-over cook while resting.
- Remove tenderloin from heat and let rest for 7-8 minutes before slicing.
Freeze For Later: Follow step 2. Seal the seasoned pork in a gallon-sized freezer bag. Squeeze out any excess air, seal, and freeze.
Prepare From Frozen: Thaw completely (use one of these safe thawing methods). Grill according to recipe directions.
