Grilled Memphis Pork Tenderloin Filet Sandwiches

Grilled Memphis Pork Tenderloin Filet Sandwiches from 101 Cooking For Two
A melt in your mouth piece of wonderfulness. Pieces of pork tenderloin with a tasty spicy rub that cooks in 8 minutes. Based on my own Memphis pork tenderloin.
Take a pork tenderloin, trim, cut into 1 inch slices, pound into 1/4 inch thick pieces, spice and cook over high heat for 8 minutes and serve.

 Rating
An absolute 5.

Notes: this made 7 serving out of one tenderloin. You could easily prep these ahead and cook a large number quickly for a party. I used my Memphis tenderloin spicing and it was great but feel free to spice anyway you want.

Tools: clean gas grill
Ingredients:
1 pork tenderloin trimmed   
Memphis Dry Rub
2 T paprika
1 T brown sugar
1 T kosher salt
1 t black pepper
1/2 t chili powder
1/4-1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/2 t dry mustard
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t onion powder

Instructions:
1) Preheat grill on high. Clean and oil grill.
2) Trim any fat and the silverskin from the tenderloin
3) Cut into 1 to 1 1/4 inch slices except the thin tail should be about twice as long and the thick end a little less.
4) Place pieces one at a time into a thick plastic freezer bag, place on a solid surface with the cut edge facing up/down. Pound into flat fillets about 1/4 inch thick. With the thin end, place the cut edge down and hand press down on the piece to flatten and then pound into shape.
5) Mix spices in a small bowl. Apply liberally to both sides of the filets.
6) Place over high heat and cook for 4-5 minutes per side.

What kind of temps are you cooking that at? From the appearance your timing seems to be 2 min, turn 90 degrees, 2 min, flip, 2 min, turn 90 degrees, 2 min remove from grill. (8 total)

To go that long I'm guessing a medium temp like 300f?

I did 4 minutes per side. I though it would take longer but I did a second flip at 8 minutes and check the temp and got 160 to 165 so off they came. I thing they could be hockey pucks if you're not careful. The grill temp not checked... just cranked up to high. I'll get the thermometer out next time. Rotating every 2 minutes would help with hot spots on the grill but mine are at the back of the grill and I avoided them.
