Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into medallions
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, red onion, minced garlic, olive oil, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and black pepper. Toss everything together until the vegetables are evenly coated with the oil and herbs.

  3. Transfer the seasoned vegetables to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spreading them out in an even layer. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and slightly caramelized.

  4. While the vegetables are roasting, season the pork medallions with salt and black pepper on both sides.

  5. Once the grill is hot, place the seasoned pork medallions directly on the grill grates. Grill for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium doneness.

  6. Remove the grilled pork medallions from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

  7. Once the vegetables are done roasting, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a serving platter.

  8. Arrange the grilled pork medallions on top of the herb-roasted vegetables, and garnish with fresh herbs if desired.

  9. Serve immediately and enjoy this lean and tender grilled pork medallions with herb-roasted vegetables.
