Grilled pork tenderloin with grilled pineapple.

Last night I grilled pork tenderloin and slices of pineapple, marinated in apple butter and orange juice.  The apple butter added a nice sweet flavor to the pork and a sweet spiced flavor to the pineapple.    
I purchased a large pork tenderloin and cut it into three 2 person servings. I sliced the pork tenderloin into one inch thick slices. I also sliced the pineapple into one-inch thick slices and grilled two slices which was enough for the Chief and I.  
Serves 2
Pork Tenderloin sliced into three one-inch thick slices.
2 slices of pineapple one inch thick
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/2 cup of spiced apple butter
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of cloves

Mix orange juice, apple butter, cinnamon and cloves together and pour 1/2 over the pork and the other 1/2 over the pineapple. Marinade in the refrigerator for 3 hours.

Grill the pork and the pineapple on medium for 25 minutes. Approximately twelve minutes on each side. This may vary depending on the heat of your grill.  
My handy little helper. 
Pork tenderloin is a very lean meat and it has a tendency to get very dry when grilled. The Apple Butter marinade keeps the pork moist.
I'm glad the weather is nice again because we could grill out every day.
