Great weather in sunny California, to enjoy the outdoors and keep on grilling. We are enjoying our late afternoons at our small patio and grilling meats and veggies for easy family dinners and fun conversations.

I typically like to grill steaks, burgers, chicken breast and veggies. Usually, I for pork tenderloin seared first in a hot cast iron grill and then baked in the oven until is cooked through. This time, my husband asked why don't we grill it, it will bring the smoky flavors to next level. I am so glad we did. That salty smoky crust and so juice and tender inside.

The spices I used for this grilled pork loin recipe, is a dry rub I made at home combining my favorite seasonings. There is some smokiness coming from the smoked paprika and cumin which are the key ingredients for this dry rub.

This meat is so juicy and tender and when cooked on the grill that dry rub make a perfect crust. The key is to let it rest before cutting so the juices stay inside the meat.

For this dish I made blistered garlic and parmesan green beans topped with crunchy warm almonds... oh my a burst of flavors in one bite.

Dinner is ready! Let's cook and dishplay_it together !

Cheers to happy, fun and tasty dinners!
