Sweet Onion Pork Tenderloin on the BBQ

Recipe generously provided by Wilsons Employee Patrick Wadden

We love a good, two-ingredient BBQ recipe, and this one is a crowd-pleaser! Try it with your favourite vinaigrette, or use Sweet Onion like we've recommended.

Prep time: 5 minutes, plus 20-30 minutes to let the meat come to room temperature

Cooking time: 20 minutes. 

What you’ll need: 

  • 1 medium-sized Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 bottle of Renées Sweet Onion Vinaigrette Salad Dressing 
  • Salt & Pepper

How to make it:

Remove the ‘silver skin’ from the tenderloin. Let the pork come to room temperature and then season it with salt & pepper. 

Turn on your BBQ to medium-high and place the tenderloin directly on the grill for 4 minutes, then, using tongs, rotate it 90 degrees and let it cook for an additional 4 minutes. Do this again until all four sides of the pork tenderloin are cooked.

Holding the pork tenderloin with tongs, coat it with the sweet onion vinaigrette on all sides using a brush. Place the pork back on the grill and let it cook for an extra 3 minutes, while continuing to brush it with more dressing every minute or so. This helps create a delicious glaze!

Remove the tenderloin from the BBQ and transfer it to a plate. Cover it entirely with tin foil and let it rest for 3-5 minutes.

Serve it with microwaved baked potatoes (just wash them, pierce them and microwave in a bowl, covered, for approximately 10 minutes until the sides are soft) and cold salads for a meal that doesn't heat up your house.

Always cook meat to the recommended minimum internal temperature to ensure it is safe to eat. Consult this website for a chart of safe internal cooking temperatures.
