Lemon Pepper Pork Tenderloin (Easy)

I don't use a lemon pepper seasoning out of a jar. This is much, much better.

First, I take 1 cup of canola oil, the juice of two lemons, a handful of fresh oregano, and about 10 cloves of rough chopped garlic. I throw them in the blender and blend until smooth (with little chunks of garlic). I marinate the tenderloins for about 2 hours.


I generously season the marinated tenderloin with kosher salt and cracked pepper.


I grill them over medium direct heat, until about 135 degrees internal.


Ready to tent with foil and let it rest.


On the plate.


This is really good - using the lemon juice marinade gives it a fresher flavor than the pre-mixed lemon pepper seasonings that are so popular.

No. When using fresh herbs and lemon juice, I didn't want to overpower it with the smoke.

Thanks. I've been told that I like it a little too raw...

I always overdo pork when i grill it. Yours looks perfect! I love fresh lemon flavor in meat.

I will definately try this.
