Where to Buy Pork Tenderloin:

We purchase our pork tenderloin at Costco. They seem to have the best pricing and the meat is consistently great quality – they come in large packs of 4 total and each pork tenderloin comes out to about $5 which is so reasonable, especially if you are cooking for a crowd.

What is the Difference Between Pork Tenderloin and Pork Loin?

  • What is a Pork Tenderloin? It is smaller and thinner usually 1 to 1 1/2 lbs each. Also known as pork tender or pork filet.
  • Pork tenderloin is best cooked quickly over higher heat. It is more forgiving and you can even overcook it a little and it will still be juicy, which is why we used it for this grilled pork tenderloin recipe.
  • Silver skin must be removed from pork tenderloin before cooking (see tutorial below).
  • What is a Pork Loin? It is larger and thicker weighing 2 to 5 lbs. It is also known as pork loin roast or center cut pork loin roast. pork loin is best cooked slower on lower heat.
  • Both cuts are lean but their shapes and sizes are very different, so they should NOT be substituted in recipes.

How to Trim Pork Tenderloin “Silver Skin”:

For the most tender, flavorful and easy to chew results, you must first remove the white membrane known as “silver skin” from the pork tenderloin. If not removed, the silver skin can be tough and chewy once cooked.

To Remove Silver Skin: Insert the tip of your knife between the silver skin and meat and slide your knife along the meat while pulling the silver skin and fat away at the same time.

How to Make Grilled Peaches:

Peaches are the easiest fruit to grill because they don’t need any glaze or seasoning. They become so juicy and just explode with flavor.

How to Pit Peaches: Ripe locally grown peaches are the easiest to pit. Slice the peach all around starting at the stem and coming back to it. Twist both halves of the peaches. and one side should end up pitted. Run a pairing knife around the top and bottom of the pit and wiggle it around until it pops off.

How to Grill Peaches: brush both sides with olive oil and place on a clean preheated grill for 4-5 minutes per side over medium heat (300˚F).

    Hello Natasha. Amazing recipe! I loved the pork version. We wanted to try it with a turkey tenderloin. Do you think that would work, what would be the cooking time? Reply

      Hi Lina. I haven’t tried this with Turkey but I think it could work. If you experiment with that I would love to know how it works out. I would recommend watchign the cook time closely I can imagine turkey will take a little less time, just make sure to check the internal temperature. Reply

    Did you ever buy a cookbook and find there are a lot of good recipes in there but you only use about 10% ? I don’t do that anymore, I go thru your recipes and print the ones I like. When I need something really good I just go thru your recipes and my mouth waters. Reply

    Delicious! We paired it with corn, and roasted Brussels, and we were perfectly satisfied. Next time I think we’ll try a little cayenne on the peaches – the pork would be salty/savory, and the peaches spicy/sweet. Mmmmmm! Definitely a recipe to save! Reply

    We just grilled this recipe tonight. It was so easy and so delicious! We have never had grilled peaches before, and we are so glad we made them. They tasted like peach cobbler without all the too sweet sugar–total yum! Thank you so much for the recipe. I am adding it to my favorites. Reply

    We made this last night and it was great. Used a little more red pepper as suggested and also used the white peaches from Costco since they were available … heavenly! Reply

    Can this be cooked in the oven and if so what temp and how long. Some places have high burn days if you live around the mountains and can’t grill outside.

    Thanks,

        Thanks so much. I really wanted to make this recipe, but it’s to hot and to dry to grill outside so now I can cook it in the oven. Reply

    Hi Natasha

    I want to try this recipe, what meat can I replace for pork plz? Reply

    • Natasha
      June 23, 2018

      Hi Nargis, you might try chicken thighs or chicken breast but the grilling time will vary depending on the cut and thickness of the chicken. Beef steaks would also probably be great using this same recipe. Reply
