Lemon Herb Grilled Pork Tenderloin is a delicious and easy way to amp up the flavor of your pork tenderloin! The lemon herb marinade infuses the pork with bright citrus flavor, and grilling it adds a wonderful smokiness and char that brings this recipe to life! Fire up your grill and make this juicy and flavorful pork tenderloin for dinner!


  • 2 Spotted Boar Pork Tenderloins (about 2 pounds total)
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 lemons, juiced (about 1/2 cup juice)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped


  1. Add the pork tenderloins into a large, deep bowl, baking dish or large food storage bag. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary and garlic into a small bowl or glass and stir to combine. Pour the marinade over the pork tenderloins and lightly massage to fully incorporate. Marinate the pork tenderloin for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator. (If marinating for 30 minutes or less, it can be left on the counter in a cool place.)
  2. Preheat your grill to high heat, about the 450-500 range, 15 minutes prior to grilling. If the pork has been marinating in the refrigerator, bring it out to allow to come to room temperature slightly before grilling.
  3. Remove the pork from the marinade and discard the marinade. Grill on high heat for about 10-15 minutes per side until the desired cooking temperature is reached. The pork should be cooked to at least 145 degrees for medium, and this will take roughly 30 minutes. For a more done pork tenderloin, cook it to 160 degrees.
  4. Allow the pork tenderloin to rest for about 10 minutes before slicing it against the grain and serving. Enjoy!


  • Dried or fresh herbs can be used for the marinade. If using fresh, double the amounts as dried herbs are more potent.
  • Cook the pork tenderloin to 145-160 degrees depending on desired doneness.
