Number of Servings: 4


    4 cup, chunk Pineapple, canned
    1 large Onions, quartered
    1 cup Bell peppers (Green, Red, Yellow, Orange), diced
    1 carrot (7-1/2") Carrots, slivered
    16 oz Pork Tenderloin
    3 clove Garlic, pressed
    1 tsp Ginger, divided
    Red pepper to taste (optional)
    2 cup White Rice, long grain, cooked


Add an extra layer or two of aluminum foil underneath the veggie packet to prevent the sugars in the juice from burning.


Rinse and dry pork tenderloin, rub with 2 cloves of pressed garlic and set aside. Split the juice from the canned pineapple into thirds. Pour 1/3 of the juice over the tenderloin, cover and let sit for at least 1 hour.

Combine 1/3 of the pineapple juice, 1 clove of garlic, and a pinch of ginger in a saucepan. Simmer until reduced and thickened. Use this as a glaze for the tenderloin.

In a foil packet, combine pineapple chunks, peppers, onion, and carrots. Pour 1/3 of the pineapple juice and a pinch of ginger into the packet. Add red pepper to taste. Fold into a tent shape and grill on medium heat for 40 minutes.

rub the tenderloin with the remaining ginger. Grill pork tenderloin on indirect heat for approximately 30 minutes per pound, turning every 5-8 minutes and glazing with the pineapple reduction. Cook until internal temp reaches 160 and then pull from the grill and rest at least 10 minutes before carving.

Serve sliced pork and pineapple vegetables over rice with a side of zucchini noodles garnished with sesame seeds.
