Saturday Eats...

David grilled the most amazing pork tenderloin for dinner last night and I just had to share the recipe because it is just THAT GOOD! It had to be the most tender tenderloin I've ever had and I was actually pleasantly surprised that it came out so well and I liked it so much because I am particularly picky when it comes to any type of pork dish. The recipe actually came from the Summer 2006 Kraft Food & Family Magazine that is full of recipes and you can sign up on the Kraft site for free to receive this publication. I will include the links below. The recipe includes cooking instructions for either the oven or the grill, but David grilled it as we are big time grillers in our house!
