We prefer our pork tenderloin to be pink in the middle. The length of time to achieve this is not exact because of the type of grill which you may be using (gas, charcoal or electric) and because of the weight of the loin. I have prepared this recipe on both a gas and electric grills. Both methods average around 20 minutes, with the electric grill taking a little longer. A good indication for the length of time per side is based on a couple of things. One, is the tenderloin easy to turn after 10 minutes? If it's sticking to the grill, it needs another 2-3 minutes. The second side tends to take a little less time, but you may have to sear the sides to finish the grilling. If the meat is firm, but not hard as a rock (overdone), when you press it with a pair of tongs, the tenderloin should be done to a medium, medium-rare. If the tenderloin feels mushy or soft when you press it, it is underdone and generally needs more time on the grill.
