  • 3 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano, 3 tsp. finely crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Coarse salt and black pepper
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 1/2 lbs.)

In a food processor, pulse the parsley to chop. Add the garlic, 1/2 cup EVOO, 1/2 tsp. dried oregano, the vinegar, red pepper, 1/2 tsp. coarse salt and 1 pinch black pepper; pulse to combine. Transfer to a bowl; let sit for 2 hours.

Preheat a grill to medium-high. Brush the pork with EVOO and rub with 1 tsp. coarse salt, the crumbled oregano and powdered garlic.
