Grilled Pork Loin and Asparagus

Standard

We be Grillin! I love this time of year. This is my second summer up here, and it’s just awesome. We are outside nearly every night, hangin out, chillin with the neighbors, and 90% of the time, there’s something on the grill.

This dinner was super easy, super good, and super healthy.

Grilled Pork Loin

1.5 lb fresh pork loin

season to taste with salt, black pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika

1 Tbsp your favorite BBQ sauce and 1 Tbsp honey mustard (mixed together)

Grilled Asparagus

1 bunch fresh Asparagus

1Tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat outdoor grill to Medium High.

Season pork loin with salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika, on all sides.

Place trimmed asparagus in foil, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. make sure they are coated with the oil, and close the foil, as to make a packet of sorts.

Mosey on outside, with the seasoned pork and asparagus……. and a cold drink in hand πŸ˜‰

I usually oil my grill, with a little veg oil on a paper towel, before putting my meats on just to ensure easy clean up.

Put pork on lower grill and asparagus packet on the upper level. If you don’t have two levels, I recommend placing the asparagus over indirect heat.

Cook for about 20-25 minutes turning every 5-7 minutes. The internal temp should be 160′ for pork.

During the last five minutes of cooking, brush the BBQ sauce/Honey Mustard mixture over the pork on all sides

The trick is to not overcook the pork. Let it rest for a good 10 minutes before slicing.

This meat was SO TENDER AND JUICY! I heard the hubs ask “Seriously???” after the first bite he took πŸ™‚

SERIOUSLY!
