Ingredients

Prep Time

10 min

Total Time

1.15 hrs

Yield

Feeds 2-3 adults.
  • 1 Pork Tenderloin ( it's easy to grill multiple tenderloins at the same time if needed)
  • Red Wine
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions

  • 1

    Brinerate (a combination of brining and marinating) pork tenderloins in red wine by submerging them in a combination of 2 cups red wine and 2 tbsp salt and letting the tenderloin sit in the mixture for 1 hour. If you have 4 hours, reduce the salt to 1 tbsp. and let sit to 4 hours. If you have no time, just douse the tenderloins in the wine (no salt) before grilling. It’ll still add extra moisture and flavor!

  • 2

    Remove the tenderloin from the marinade, pat dry and season liberally on all sides with salt and pepper.

  • 3

    Place the tenderloin on a grill set up for direct cooking and preheated to 400ºF. Grill for 4-5 minutes per side until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.

  • 4

    Remove from grill, let rest for 5 minutes and cut into slices. Enjoy!
