Balsamic Pork Tenderloin

Contrary to popular belief, we have been cooking in this household!  We've just been taking advantage of our grill and most of our recipes have been meat seasoned with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes with a veggie side.  Anyway, this recipe was worth sharing due to its deliciousosity and its novelty in our household- I don't think that I've ever had pork tenderloin before?

Recipe adapted from Kitchen Confidante
5 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
2 pork tenderloins

Stir together all the ingredients (except for the pork) to create a paste.  Coat each pork tenderloin with the paste and allow to marinate for at least one hour- preferably 24 hours.

Preheat grill to medium high heat and grill each of the four sides for 5 minutes.  The internal temperature should be 160 degrees, if it isn't keep on grilling until it reaches that point.

Let the tenderloins rest for ~5-10 minutes before slicing.
