This is the second recreation from our recent Fogo de Chao dining experience.  We loved this pork just as much as the garlic beef we made last week.  I adapted a recipe online that claimed to be from Fogo de Chao.  The marinade was simple enough – equal parts salt, fajita seasoning, and lemon pepper; then add wine.  I opted to leave the salt out – I figured there was enough salt in the fajita seasoning.  We grilled the pork for about 12 minutes and then coated it in parmesan cheese and baked it a few minutes in the oven for the cheese to melt.  It was fantastic – just like the Parmesan Pork at Fogo de Chao!

Pork is safe to eat at 145ºF. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. We like the pork to have a warm pink center. Feel free to cook it longer if you prefer. We like to serve this pork with a salad, some potatoes, and green beans. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this yummy pork tenderloin:
