What You're Gonna Need:

  • 3 oz olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 handful fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1-2 lbs.)
  • salt and pepper to taste

What Ya Gotta Do:

  • Pour the olive oil into a large storage bag.
  • Add the chopped garlic and basil.
  • Pop in some salt and pepper to taste.
  • Shake it all up. You could shake it like its hot...but its not.
  • Add the pork tenderloin (trimmed if you like).
  • Shake some more but not all night long.
  • Remove air from bag before sealing.
  • Massage the herbs (through the bag) into the loin.
  • Put in the fridge for 4 hours to let it marinate.
  • Fire up the grill and keep it on high heat.
  • Put the marinated tenderloin on and sear one side for 2 minutes.
  • Flip it and sear the other side for 2 minutes.
  • Lower heat to low. Grill for 6 minutes.
  • Flip and grill 6 more minutes.
  • Remove from the grill and let rest for a bit.
  • Slice and serve with fresh buttered summer squash from our garden. Not yours. Ours.
