Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, divided
  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. 2. Thinly slice 1 garlic clove. With a sharp knife, make 8 small slits in pork; insert garlic slices into slits. Coat pork with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Place pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 20 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 155°, turning once. Let stand for 5 minutes; slice.
