Greek Style Lemon-Mustard Grilled Pork Tenderloins instructions:

Trim the fat and silver membrane off the of the tenderloins.  

Cut the tenderloin into 6 inch pieces,  then butterfly (cut halfway through) length-wise.   

Spread the “butterfly”, wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper and pound out into ¾ inch steak-like pieces with a food mallet or rolling pin.   

Put the “steaks” in a zip lock bag with the marinade for up to 2 hours, but not more than overnight, turning occasionally.

Grill, uncovered, for 3 to 4 minutes until steaks become well-browned. Flip and continue cooking the second side for another 3-4 minutes until second side becomes well-browned.

The internal temperature should reach 140 degrees. Avoid overcooking.

Cut them into 2 inch medallions on an angle.
