Cook Time90 Minutes
Calories267
Ingredients
2 1/2 tbs olive oil, divided
1 1/2 tbs Cajun spice rub seasoning
2 1/2 tbs fresh lemon juice
1 1/4 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves plus additional sprigs for garnish (optional)
1 Chairman's Reserve pork tenderloin (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 head garlic
Lemon zest for garnish (optional)
Directions
  1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over low heat. In small bowl, whisk 1½ tablespoons oil, seasoning, lemon juice and thyme. Brush pork with oil mixture; let stand 1 hour at room temperature. .

  2. With serrated knife, slice about ¼ inch off top of garlic head to expose top of cloves. Place garlic cut side up on sheet of foil; drizzle exposed cloves with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Wrap foil tightly around garlic; place on hot grill rack. Cook, covered, 1 hour; carefully open foil packet and cook 10 minutes. Remove from grill; when cool enough to handle, gently squeeze out garlic cloves.

  3. Increase grill heat to medium; preheat 15 minutes. Place pork on hot grill rack; cook, covered, 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140°, turning pork ¼ turn every 5 minutes. Transfer pork to cutting board; loosely cover with foil and let stand 10 minutes. (Internal temperature will rise 5° to 10° upon standing.) .

  4. Slice pork and serve with garlic garnished with lemon zest and thyme sprigs, if desired. . Dietitian Tip: Keeping the house cool? No problem! Serve the pork on top of a salad of local veggies like tomatoes and lettuce, and even add some seasonal fruit like peaches for some sweet with your savory.
