Picture this: You’ve got guests coming over for a cookout in less than an hour. What can you grill that will be both impressive and quick? The answer is almost always pork tenderloin. It’s also the answer for quick weeknight dinners from the grill when you’ve run through the usual hot dog and chicken breast routine already. Hearty enough to serve four or more, pork tenderloin cooks up faster than you can whip up burgers with all the fixings.
