How do you cook pork tenderloin on a gas grill?
To cook pork tenderloin on a gas grill, you need to preheat your grill to 400 degrees. I like to heat the grill to temperature, then use a grill brush to make sure the grill slats are clean.
Slice or cut the tenderloin into smaller pieces before cooking.
Add the marinated pork tenderloin directly to the grill slats.
How long does it take to grill pork tenderloin on the grill?
Close the lid and grill for 10 minutes. Open the grill lid and use tongs to flip the tenderloin slices over. Cook another 10 minutes and check the internal temperature with a thermometer.
What temperature should pork tenderloin be?
Cook the pork tenderloin until the internal temperature measures 145 degrees.
Can you grill pork tenderloin on foil?
I like to cook the pork tenderloin directly on the grill, as shown above, but you can easily cook the pork tenderloin on foil if that is easier for you.
