Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Plums

Grilling pork tenderloin has to be one of the easiest dinners to make.  And serving it with grilled plums and blue cheese makes this into a dish good enough for company.  Now that all the fall fruits - peaches, pears and plums - are starting to come into season, this is a perfect dish to use some of this bounty.

I have seen this recipe in many places on the web so I don't know who first thought of it, but whoever it was has come up with a wonderful and easy-to-make dish.

You will find pork tenderloin with all the other pork cuts in the meat section of your grocery store.  It comes in different sizes so you can easily find one to suit your family.  Even if you end up with a larger one than you need, the leftovers can be frozen for a quick-to-heat meal at a later time.

Tenderloin doesn't require a lot of marinating, just some seasoning with sea salt and ground pepper.  But if you wish to use a marinade or one of the rub recipes I have given you go right ahead because it will only enhance the finished flavour.

It's best to grill the tenderloin whole, that way you will have a nice piece of meat that's crusty on the outside and juicy on the inside.  Let it sit for a couple of minutes once you take it off the grill before you slice it.

While you are grilling your tenderloin, you can grill the plums.  Choose large firm plums, and stay away from the very sweet ones.  Dark skinned plums are usually a bit more tart and best for use here. Cut them in half, then place cut side down on the grill.  Once they have browned, turn them over and put a piece of blue cheese on top of each half.  Leave just until the cheese starts to melt, then remove to a serving dish.

Make sure you watch these. Once it starts to melt the cheese will become runny very quickly, and you want to remove them before this happens.  In fact, some people prefer to top the hot grilled plums with the cheese once they have removed them from the grill for just this very reason.

Serve your sliced tenderloin and plum halves with a mixed green side salad and you have a very delicious and tasty meal.
