Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Mustard-Dill Sauce

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Mustard-Dill Sauce is great for a summer outdoor cookout. Pork tenderloin is relatively inexpensive and is very low in fat, so this makes a delicious healthful meal. Pork tenderloin and pork loin are very different cuts of meat. Pork tenderloins are longer and skinnier than pork loin and cook way faster.
