BBQ Pork Recipe

Mediterranean Barbecued Pork Fillet - Tenderloin

Here's a great BBQ pork recipe that's easy, quick, healthy and totally foolproof. Pork fillet/tenderloin is very healthy because it is virtually fat free and that also makes it  easy to overcook. So, just be careful not to overdo it, you're better off to leave it a little pink inside than to dry it out :)
Pam's Tips: Marinate your pork fillet well in advance and don't make your heat too fierce - the flavours are quite subtle.
