It’s hard to beat barbecued pork tenderloin on the grill.
Barbecued Pork Tenderloin
¾ pound pork tenderloin
½ cup low-sugar barbecue sauce
1 garlic clove, crushed
½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Prepare a medium fire in grill. Remove fat from pork and butterfly it: Slice almost in half lengthwise and open like a book. Combine barbecue sauce, garlic and hot sauce.
Grill pork 5 minutes. Turn and cook another 5 minutes. Brush 2 tablespoons sauce over pork and grill 2 more minutes (to 160 degrees). Remove from grill.
Heat remaining sauce. Slice pork at an angle. Spoon on warm sauce or serve it on the side.
Yield: Serves 2.
