Ninja Grill Tuscan Pork is an easy and flavorful recipe. It has a lovely combination of Italian herbs and seasonings that give it a distinct taste. I believe you can buy a Tuscan rub, but I use my own Tuscan Dry Rub – Quick and Easy because it is so easy to make and store. Normally I have all the ingredients needed for it in the house.
This is also an easy COST Cooking Recipe. I will purchase three or four, one pound tenderloins at the store. Just season them, cut them and freeze at least three pounds in individual one pound bags. Since the Ninja Grill can cook from frozen it is an easy recipe to pull out a bag or two and serve a crowd, or a team. The Ninja Grill Tuscan Pork converts to the regular grill easily for an outdoor BBQ.
We recently had a weekend of games every night. Everyone was on the run between games and other family events for the upcoming holiday. So we invited another family over for dinner. I was able to quickly whip up some Asparagus Wrapped in Bacon and Ninja Foodi Baby Potatoes in the Ninja Foodi. Paring these with the frozen Ninja Grill Tuscan Pork and a bottle of red wine and we had a great meal. I have the meat thermometer on my Ninja Grill so cooking from frozen is even easier.
This recipe can be applied to chicken if you are not a pork eater. Be sure to remove any skin and coat the entire check in breast.
Ninja Grill Tuscan Pork
- 1 tbsp Grapeseed Oil Can substitute olive, canola or other oils.
- 1 lb Pork Tenderloin Can substitute pork chops
- 4 Tbsp Tuscan Dry Rub See recipe on www.busyhockeymama.com
- Using the grape seed oil, lightly spray the tenderloin or outside edge of the pork chops.
- Cover the pork tenderloin in the Tuscan Dry Rub. Make sure the tenderloin is coated well on all sides. If using pork chops coat the outside edge.
- Cut the tenderloin into 1.5 inches thick.
- Let the pork sit in the rub if you have time, if you do not, you can cook immediately.
- Select Grill function on the Ninja Grill and use the default temperature of 500°. If using the probe, plug the probe in and press TEMP IQ to set the temperature to 140°.
- Insert the temperature probe into the middle of the thickest piece of meat. Do not push all the way through.
- Brush the pork faces that will sit on the grill with grapes even oil or other oil. Do not use olive oil as that will smoke due to it’s lower smoking point.
- When Ninja Grill displays Add Food, add the pork directly onto the grill grate.
- If using the probe when at about 90-100° flip the pork on the grill. If not using the probe, typically about 6 minutes a side works for tenderloin. If using pork chops, depending on the thickness of the pork chops you may want to use a meat thermometer to manage when to flip them.
- Remove from grill when an internal temperature of the meat equals 140°.
