Sailboat Galley – Spicy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

A pork tenderloin is a long, narrow, boneless cut of meat that comes from the muscle that runs along the backbone.

This versatile cut of meat is best for quick roasting, broiling, grilling, sautéing, and braising. The keyword here is quick. By itself, it’s a mild-tasting meat. So think of it as a blank but juicy canvas for sauces, rubs, and marinades.

Pork is a rich source of certain vitamins and minerals your body needs to function, like iron and zinc. It’s also an excellent source of high-quality protein. So your favorite pork tenderloin is for you.

How to prepare it:

  • Combine all spices in a small bowl. 
  • Lay tenderloin on waxed paper or aluminum foil. Sprinkle with half the spice mixture and rub in. Roll tenderloin over and rub with the remaining spice mixture. Fold wax paper (or foil) completely around the tenderloin and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.
  • Remove from wax paper and grill over medium heat with the lid closed. Turn over every 5 minutes for a total of 30 minutes, or until the thermometer inserted into the center reads 145 degrees F. Let stand 3 minutes before slicing and serving.

Prepared mustard can be used instead of dry mustard. Use 2 teaspoons and mix well.

If you can’t find ground jalapeno, use additional cayenne pepper.
