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).
