Grilled Chipotle Pork Tenderloin with Polenta

This is one of the easiest way to make yummy dish . I am not so much of a fan of pork tenderloin , although it is actually can be considered a healthy food . It’s the other white meat , i like to get pork tenderloin that has white fat on top still . It brings out the flavor to be better , compared the one that you have the skin removed . This one is super easy , as long as you have ziploc bag , spices , brown sugar , and pork , and grill .. you’ll be set and ready for a yummy quick dinner .
