Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Chimichurri

Grilled pork tenderloins are one of my favorite proteins. They cook fast and come out delicious. One great way to spice up a classic pork tenderloin is with a tangy and herby chimichurri. It adds tons of great flavor to the tenderloin and is easy to make.

It’s back to school season and that means busy parents and kids. One way that we decompress after a long and busy day is with a family dinner. It’s a great time to talk about the day, spend quality time together and enjoy a delicious meal. And this grilled pork tenderloin recipe is perfect for a weekday meal. Since it’s a smaller and leaner cut, it cooks very quickly. We always cook our pork to an internal temperature of 145 degrees, ensuring a tender and juicy final product.
