How To Make garlic and rosemary pork tenderloin

  • 1
    Peel, crush and finely mince garlic on cutting board.-
  • 2
    Sprinkle the garlic with the sail and then use the back of the knife and a lot of pressure to start to rub the garlic into a paste. The salt will allow you to break the garlic down into a paste as you rub it with the back of the knife. Repeat the process until you get a nice paste consistency.
  • 3
    Remove and then mince the leaves of 4 of the rosemary sprigs, saving the stems and remaining sprigs until later in the recipe.
  • 4
    Combine the garlic, rosemary, olive oil, and a few turns of black pepper in a small bowl and mix thoroughly to form a paste.
  • 5
    Pat the pork tenderloin dry with a paper towel and then rub with the garlic and rosemary paste.
  • 6
    Allow the pork to sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes to marinate.
  • 7
    Light the grill and prepare for medium grilling.
  • 8
    Once the grill is ready and the pork tenderloin has marinated for 20 minutes, throw the 2 remaining rosemary sprigs and reserved sprigs down into the fire and then immediately place the pork tenderloin over the now smoldering rosemary and close the lid of the grill.
  • 9
    Grill for about 6 minutes and then open the lid of the grill and turn the pork tenderloin 1/4 turn. Treat the pork like it has 4 sides, we are going to grill all 4 sides to get it nice and even.
  • 10
    Continue to grill the pork 6 minutes per side until it reaches an internal temperature of around 145 degrees.
  • 11
    Remove the pork tenderloin from the grill, cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 8 minutes before slicing
