What to serve with grilled pork tenderloin:

These are all delicious side dishes with grilled pork tenderloin. We love that so many different dishes goes with pork. I like to choose recipes that can also be cooked on the grill but feel free to use your favorite cooking method.

How long to grill pork tenderloin:

The pork needs to be cooked until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. It will vary based on the size of your tenderloin. Ours took about 20 minutes.

We like to use an instant read thermometer for meat to make sure that the pork is cooked to a safe temperature before eating. 

Pork does not take long to cook and can become dry very quickly. It is important that you do not overcook the tenderloin and use a meat thermometer.

How to store leftovers:

Refrigerate the leftover pork in an airtight container for up to 5 days. I like to place it inside individual containers to make it easy to meal plan. This will make it so convenient to grab for a quick meal on the way out the door.

You can add any leftover sides to these containers or make a pork sandwich.

Another option is to free the pork tenderloin for longer storage. Just make sure to use a freezer container.

How to reheat:

Reheat the meat in the microwave until it is warm. If frozen, allow to thaw overnight in the fridge. Then reheat in the oven or microwave.

Be careful that you do not cook it too long when reheating or it will dry it out.

Seasoning variations:

  • Garlic. We used minced garlic but garlic powder would be great as well.
  • Maple Syrup. Substitute maple syrup for honey in the marinade.
  • Brown Sugar. You can add brown sugar to taste for a sweeter pork recipe. I suggest 1 to 2 tablespoons depending on how sweet you like it.

Tips for Grilling pork tenderloin:

  • Cut of pork. Instead of pork loin, try using pork chops.
  • Remove moisture from the tenderloin. Pat try the tenderloin with a paper towel before placing in the marinade.
  • Prepare the grill. The gas grill or charcoal grill should be pre-heated. The grates also need to be coated in oil so the meat does not stick. If you are needing a new grill, check out the Best Grills under $500.
  • Allow to rest. The meat should rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. This will keep all those flavor packed juices inside. The meat will also continue to cook as it rests.
  • Do not overcook the meat. It can dry out fast and it’s too late once it is dry. Watch the pork closely and use an instant read thermometer to make sure you do not overcook it.
  • Marinade at least 30 minutes. The tenderloin needs to marinate at least 30 minutes but longer is even better.

Slow cooker option:

If you are unable to grill, try cooking the pork tenderloin in the crock pot. Prepare as normal and place in the slow cooker.

It will need to cook on high for 2 to 2 ½ hours or low for 4 hours. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes after cooking.

You will still need to use an instant read meat thermometer to ensure it is fully cooked to 145 degrees internal temperature.
