Uses, Tips and Tricks!
The Perfect Tenderloin Cops
Prep Time: 5 min.
Cook Time: 15–18 min. (7-9 min. per side)
This Recipe will work with almost any cut of pork. We like tenderloin! As always, it's best to start with a good cut of Pork, so talk to your butcher about different types and grades of pork and choose the size and type that suits you.
Step 1: 30 min. prior to cooking, remove the tenderloin from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature. If your tenderloin is not pre-cut, you will want to slice it into 3/4" to 1" thick chops. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and rub it in. You want just enough to evenly coat your chops.
Step 2: Shake or mix the seasoning well prior to using. This will ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed. Sprinkle the seasoning evenly over all sides of the of the chops and pat or rub to create an even coating. Remember, A little goes a long way! Use about 1 tsp. for every pound of chops. Let your chops stand for about 10 minutes before grilling or frying (we recommend grilling).
Step 3: We use a gas BBQ because we don't want to add any more flavors to this already perfect blend of seasonings. Preheat your BBQ to about 325 °F (162 °C) before placing your chops on the grill. Remember, everything from altitude to type of BBQ to cut of Pork affects cooking time. The best way to ensure a perfectly cooked chop is by using a meat thermometer. The tip of the thermometer should be placed in the center of the thickest part of the meat. The National Pork Board recommends cooking pork chops, roasts, and tenderloin to an internal temperature between 145° F. (medium rare) and 160° F. (medium), followed by a 3 minute rest. Since large cuts, like whole pork roasts, increase approximately 10° F. while resting, remove them from the heat at 150° F. followed by a 10 minute rest.
