  • Prep Time 35 min
  • Total Time 35 min
  • Servings 6

2
pork tenderloins (about 3/4 lb each)
1/4
teaspoon seasoned salt
1/3
cup barbecue sauce
1/4
cup teriyaki baste and glaze (from 12-oz bottle)
2
tablespoons finely chopped onion
2
tablespoons finely chopped chipotle chile in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can)

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Sprinkle pork with seasoned salt. In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Brush pork with barbecue sauce mixture.
  • 2 Place pork on grill rack over medium-low heat. Cover grill; cook 18 to 22 minutes, turning several times and brushing generously with remaining sauce, until pork has slight blush of pink in center and meat thermometer inserted in center reads 160°F. Discard any remaining sauce.

Expert Tips

Add corn on the cob and sliced fresh tomatoes sprinkled with cilantro for a super backyard meal.

Chipotle chiles are dried jalapeños, and just a small amount adds lots of flavor. You can freeze any remaining chiles in the adobo sauce to use at a later time.

For a great sandwich idea, slice the pork and serve it in toasted buns with shredded lettuce and sliced tomato.
