20 minute Barbecue Pork Tenderloin BBQ Rub rebeccagordon buttermilk lipstick southern training hostess outdoor living tailgate ideasThe 411

the rub

look for these ingredients in your spice cupboard
however, feel free to sub in seasonal herbs or fresh garlic cloves

the fresh herb rule of thumb
use a 1:1 ratio for pungent Rosemary for dried vs fresh

dried herbs will have a more bold flavor
increase fresh herbs 2 fold for the same flavor punch

the pork tenderloin

the weight can vary from package to package
just choose a package slightly more or less than the weight called for in the recipe

the tenderloins should be relatively lean
be sure to remove any additional fat with a knife, if necessary

the barbecue sauce

blueberries are the bomb but blackberries would be tasty too
don’t feel locked in
by all means be creative & experiment

the buns

dinner rolls or small buns are perfect for these petite bites
you can omit them all together for a more carb-friendly meal

the garnish

narrow leaf zinnia blooms are one of my very favorite flowers
sweet & petite

natural companions to plant in herb pots for snipping throughout the summer months
… adding a fresh burst of sunshine to a sea of green

garnish grilled specialties for easy on the eyes plates & entertaining platters
guests will coo over the unexpected detail
