Grilled Pork Medalions

What a great way to cook pork tenderloins.  4 minutes per side and your meat is ready.  Zucchini - 5-6 minutes per side and you have a nice side.  The feta/butter is a must. Loved this meal.  We had a few home grown tomatoes, but I didn't take a picture of them. Didn't want to make you too jealous.  I found this recipe in the food section of the Austin American Statesman.

Ingredients for Pork:
1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin
salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients for flavored butter:
1/4 cup feta - plain or flavored
4 tablespoons soft butter
1 tablespoon fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon lemon or orange zest
Slice tenderloin on a diagonal 1/2 - 3/4 ".- about 10 slices. Pound round to 1/4 " thickness. Pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. The recipe says to grill the pork 2 minutes on each side, but my grill master says 4 minutes per side. Ours was perfect for our taste.  He says to just play it by ear, whatever that means.  Who can argue with a grill master?

To make the butter - Combine butter, feta, oregano, zest, salt and pepper. Set aside for when meat and zucchini are done.

To make the zucchini - Cut it in half lengthwise. Season with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on the grill, cut side down.  Again the recipe says 3 minutes per side, but Jud grilled it about 4-5 minutes on one side and 3 minutes on the other.
