Pork tenderloin makes for a great meal at any time of the year, but one of the best things about making it in the summer is having the option to use the grill or the oven. Each method yields its own unique taste, but it’s sure to please everyone at the table. Check out the directions below for making deliciously easy pork tenderloin on the grill and in the oven.
Grilled Pork Tenderloin
- Preheat the grill to high heat.
- Place the pork on the hot grill and cook on each side for 5 to 7 minutes. Cook the pork until it is golden brown and cooked to at least medium-well internally.
- Remove from the grill and let the pork rest for 3 to 4 minutes.
If the weather isn’t cooperating for you to cook on the grill, searing your pork tenderloin on the stove and finishing it in the oven is another delicious way to serve pork.
Pork Tenderloin in the Oven
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.
- Cook the pork tenderloin by turning it until it is browned on all sides, 6–8 minutes.
- Transfer skillet to oven and cook pork until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part registers 140°F, 10–15 minutes.
- Transfer pork to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes before slicing; set aside pan drippings.
