Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Grilled Apples & Crispy Sage

This fall dish is so juicy and oh so tender! The tenderloin was marinated with olive oil, lemon zest, garlic and fresh sage for a couple of hours. Sliced Braeburn apples brushed with olive oil, fresh sage, and a little sugar. The MEATER+ was instrumental in getting the tenderloin to a perfect temperature. Truly a fall meal with all the seasonal flavors.
