This post is unlike most of my other posts in that there is only one photo. About a month ago while making this I took lots of photos of each step in the process, but the photos were of such bad quality that I could not post them here. I do make this often (almost weekly lately) so I will try to remember to take more pictures next time. (I made it tonight for dinner, but completely forgot to grab my camera. Bad food blogger…. Bad.)

 

P.S. This recipe is super similar to the garlic lemon baked chicken I posted a few months ago. That one has much more lemon and oregano, and the chicken is baked rather than grilled like this pork. (Have you realized yet that I love the flavors of lemon, garlic, and oregano? Yes … yes I do!)

Lemon Garlic Pork

A few hours before dinner, combine these ingredients in a shallow baking dish or pan:

about 1/4 cup olive oil

the juice of one lemon

lots of minced garlic

salt

a generous amount of black pepper

lots of oregano

Place 2 pork tenderloins in this mixture and roll them around to coat well.

Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least one hour.

When ready to cook, remove from fridge, then grill the pork.

Slice and serve on a pocketless pita with tomato, lettuce, red onion, and feta. Or, skip the pita and serve over a large salad of romaine, tomato, red onion, cucumbers, and feta (this makes it gluten-free).
