Grilled Herbed Pork Tenderloin

Grilled Herbed Pork Tenderloin

Puréeing the marinade in a food processor allows it to really soak into the tenderloin, giving it great citrus flavor. You can also cook the tenderloin in the oven–just allow for a slightly longer cooking time, and be sure to test doneness with a meat thermometer.

Tip: Pat the tenderloin dry with paper towels before grilling to prevent flare-ups.

The quick marinade of oregano, sage, orange juice, and honey permeates this simple grilled pork tenderloin with fresh flavor. Pair with your favorite sides like potato salad, corn on the cob, or fresh tomato slices for an easy summer dinner.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork)

 

Ingredients:

•  1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves

•  1/4 cup fresh sage leaves

•  1/4 cup fresh orange juice

•  1/4 cup honey

•  1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper

•  2 tablespoons grated lemon rind

•  2 tablespoons grapeseed oil

•  1/4 teaspoon salt

•  6 garlic cloves, peeled

•  2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed

•  1/4 teaspoon salt

•  Cooking spray

 

Preparation:

1.  Combine first 9 ingredients in a blender or food processor; process until almost smooth. Pour mixture into a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add pork to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

2.  Prepare grill.

3.  Remove pork from marinade. Discard marinade. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray; cover and grill 25 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160° (slightly pink), turning pork after 15 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

Grilled Split Chicken with Rosemary and Garlic

Grilled Split Chicken with Rosemary and Garlic

When you marinate a whole chicken overnight in a buttermilk-herb mixture, then grill it slowly over indirect heat, you’re adding a double dose of flavor.

With only five ingredients and a grill, you can create a high-flavor chicken recipe with ease. The secret is to marinate the chicken in buttermilk-herb mixture overnight.

Yield: 5 servings (serving size: 3 ounces)

 

Ingredients:

•  1 (3 1/2-pound) chicken

•  1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk

•  1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

•  1/2 teaspoon salt

•  1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

•  2 garlic cloves, minced

•  Cooking spray

 

Preparation:

1.  Remove and discard giblets and neck from chicken. Rinse chicken with cold water; pat dry. Trim excess fat. Place chicken, breast side down, on a cutting surface. Cut chicken in half lengthwise along backbone, cutting to, but not through, other side. Turn chicken over. Starting at the neck cavity, loosen skin from breast and drumsticks by inserting fingers, gently pushing between skin and meat. Place chicken, breast side up, in a large shallow dish. Combine buttermilk and remaining ingredients except cooking spray; pour under skin and over surface of chicken. Cut a 1-inch slit in skin at the bottom of each breast half. Insert tip of each drumstick into each slit. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 24 hours.

2.  To prepare chicken for indirect grilling, preheat grill to medium-hot using both burners. After preheating, turn left burner off (leave right burner on). Place a disposable aluminum foil pan on briquettes on left side. Pour 2 cups water in pan. Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill. Place chicken, skin side down, on grill rack covering left burner. Cover and grill 1 1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer registers 180°, turning halfway during cooking time. Discard skin before serving.

Jerk Chicken

Jerk Chicken

Bring the Caribbean’s heat and spice to your dinner table by basting the chicken with jerk sauce, beer, ketchup, and hot sauce. You only use a small portion of the beer in the sauce, so enjoy the rest with dinner.

“This version of jerk chicken was taught to me by our cook in Jamaica, where we vacationed annually. It starts out with bottled jerk sauce, which simplifies matters. -Marion Winik

•  1/2 cup jerk sauce, divided

•  1 cup vertically sliced onion

Grilled Chicken with Sriracha Glaze

Grilled Chicken with Sriracha Glaze

Instead of the usual barbecue sauce, brush bone-in chicken leg quarters with a sweet and spicy glaze made with hot chili sauce and mango jam for a great grilled chicken recipe. Cook the chicken over indirect heat so the glaze won’t burn.

Dense, bone-in chicken leg quarters benefit from long, slow cooking over indirect heat. The less intense heat also prevents the sweet glaze from burning.

Customize the glaze according to what you have on hand; try pineapple preserves or apple jelly in place of mango jam, for example, or hot pepper sauce instead of Sriracha. Serve with a simple slaw of cabbage, carrots, lime juice, and sugar.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 leg-thigh quarter and 1 tablespoon mango mixture)

 

Ingredients:

•  2/3 cup mango jam

•  2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

•  2 tablespoons rice vinegar

•  2 tablespoons Sriracha (hot chile sauce, such as Huy Fong)

•  1 tablespoon olive oil

•  4 (12-ounce) bone-in chicken leg-thigh quarters, skinned

•  1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

•  1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

 

Preparation:

1.  Prepare grill for indirect grilling. If using a gas grill, heat one side to medium-high and leave one side with no heat. If using a charcoal grill, arrange hot coals on either side of charcoal grate, leaving an empty space in the middle.

2.  Combine mango jam, chives, vinegar, and Sriracha, stirring until smooth. Reserve 1/4 cup mango mixture; set aside.

3.  Brush oil evenly over chicken. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

4.  Carefully remove grill rack. Place a disposable aluminum foil pan on unheated part of grill. Carefully return grill rack to grill. Place chicken on grill rack over unheated part. Brush chicken with about 2 tablespoons remaining mango mixture. Close lid; grill 90 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into meaty part of thigh registers 165°, turning chicken and brushing with about 2 tablespoons mango mixture every 20 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a platter. Drizzle chicken with reserved 1/4 cup mango mixture.

 

Wine note: This dish’s tropical fruit flavors and spicy heat are ideal for gewürztraminer, a popular grape of Germany and France. The mango and apricot flavors of the highly aromatic Hugel gewürztraminer 2006 ($20) echo those of the glaze, while a slightly sweet lychee nut character helps to balance the heat. —Jeffery Lindenmuth

TIPS & NOTES:

Meat-Buying Tips:

•  Make sure that packaged meat isn’t past its “sell-by” date and that there’s not much moisture in the packaging.

•  Touch it if possible—it should be firm and not soft.

•  Look for bright red (not gray) meat. Vacuum-packed meat will be darker looking and should turn red as soon as it’s exposed to air.
