Salt-crusted pork tenderloin

“This pork tenderloin recipe is so tasty you don’t even need a sauce! It was tested and approved at Camping Aventure Mégantic when I was there with Camping Québec last summer. #bobencamping” - Bob le Chef


Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 20 to 22 minutes


For 2 servings:

  • 1 pork tenderloin, about 300 g
  • 235 ml (1 cup) coarse salt
  • 235 ml (1 cup) flour
  • 3 egg whites
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) water
  • Minced fresh rosemary and steak spice to taste


  • Heat one side of the barbecue on high and leave the other side turned off (if you have a charcoal briquette barbecue, place briquettes on one side only)
  • Brown the tenderloin on all sides on the hot grill (about 3 minutes per side)  
  • Set the meat aside
  • In a bowl, stir together the salt, flour, egg whites and water
  • Cover a sheet of aluminum foil with a sheet of parchment paper (large enough to completely wrap around the meat and crust)
  • Use a rolling pin (or empty wine bottle) to spread the salt mixture evenly on the parchment paper
  • Place the meat on the salt crust, and then roll it up, using the parchment paper and aluminum foil to guide you (as if you were rolling sushi)  
  • Place the package on the unheated side of the grill and close the lid (you are cooking it indirectly)
  • Cook for 15 to 20 minutes (15 minutes for medium-rare and 20 for well done)  
  • Remove from the grill and let rest for 10 minutes
  • Slice the salt crust open lengthwise and remove the meat  
  • Slice the meat into medallions and serve  

Leftovers make great sandwiches.
