Flattened and grilled pork tenderloin

Grilled and cut into strips

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.
