Savor the smokey flavor and the juicy tenderness. This Smoky Grilled Pork Tenderloin turns a weeknight meal into a treat.

  •  1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  •  1-2 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice
  •  1/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar
  •  2 Teaspoons Smoked Paprika

  1. Stir together the olive oil, lime juice, brown sugar, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.

  3. Preheat the grill to 375 degrees F.
  4. Grill the pork tenderloin for 10 minutes, flip and continue to cook until internal temperature at the thickest part of the meat registers 145 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Remove the pork from the grill and cover with aluminum foil for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
