This is a whimsical way of grilling pork tenderloin. It is a great way of highlighting a great rub or of making flavor packed pork strips for appetizers. There are probably thirty different ways of using the end product that are more creative than what I have listed. I would love to hear your ideas.
The preparation and grilling is super simple. Trim, butterfly and flatten the pork tenderloin. Give both sides of the meat a solid coating of a high quality rub; I used a mix of kosher salt, paprika, garlic and fresh rosemary. Let the tenderloin marinate in the rub for an hour in the refrigerator.
I grilled this over the direct heat of a charcoal grill. Since the tenderloin was so thin it only needed about three minutes per side to cook through.
