Grilled Pork Tenderloin & Chimichurri

4-6 servings


For the Chimichurri Sauce:  (yields 2.5 cups)

  • 1/2 bunch cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 bunch flat leaf Italian parsley leaves
  • 4 poblano peppers
  • 2 serrano peppers
  • 1/4 large sweet onion
  • 1 head garlic, cloves smashed and peeled
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 2/3 cup Saica Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Jacobsen Salt Co. Habanero Infused Salt, to taste


Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640s Pellet Grill to 450ºF, set up for direct grilling, with GrillGrate panels in place over the fire box.

To make the chimichurri, first place the peppers and onion on the GrillGrates and grill until the peppers are charred on all sides and the onions is slightly softened.

Transfer the peppers to a zip top plastic bag (or covered bowl) and let steam 10-15 minutes.

While the peppers are steaming, chop up the onion and transfer to the Vitamix Blender. Add the remaining ingredients for the chimichurri to the blender.

Remove the peppers from the bag. Remove the stems. Split the peppers open and scrape out the seeds. Peel off the skins and discard. Dice the remaining flesh and add to the blender.

Blend the chimichurri to your desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning, as needed.
