Pineapple Barbecue Pork Tenderloin

Yum

Quick, easy and delicious, this recipe combines your favorite barbecue sauce and crushed pineapple, or pineapple chunks finely diced, in an amazing sauce to baste on pork tenderloin.


Since a pork tenderloin averages 1 1/2 pounds, it cooks in less than 30 minutes, making this a great dinner option any day of the week.




RECIPE
Ingredients
One pork tenderloin, 1-2 lbs. (I used pasture-raised from Sunny Cedars Farm)
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 small can crushed pineapple or pineapple chunks, finely diced

Method
Combine barbecue sauce and 1/2 can drained crushed pineapple or pineapple chunks finely diced, stirring well to combine. Store remaining pineapple in a food safe container in your refrigerator for use another time.

Baste sauce on both sides of the pork tenderloin, and grill over medium direct heat for approximately 20-30 minutes, turning once part way through the grilling time. Baste sauce over pork tenderloin several times during grilling, making sure to cover pork well on both sides. Pork should be grilled until an internal temperature of 145 is reached.

Remove pork from grill, cover and let rest 10 minutes before slicing. Serve pork with any remaining sauce.

Minimum safe internal temperature

Enjoy,
Mary
