1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
1 can pineapple rings
1 package King’s Hawaiian rolls
6-8 ounces teriyaki sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1. In a small bowl, mix all dry ingredients for your rub together. Apply dry rub to the tenderloin. Make sure it is evenly coated.

2. Place meat on an outdoor grill at medium heat (325 F) and cover. Turn meat judiciously every 3-4 minutes to avoid burning the outside. When the meat reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 F, it is done. Remove from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing into 1/2″ thick medallions.

3. While the tenderloin is cooking, open the can of pineapple rings and place them on the grill. Flip the rings when they have nice dark brown grill marks and remove when the other side is done.

4. At the same time you are grilling the pineapple rings, open your package of King’s Hawaiian Rolls and using a bread knife, cut them in half. Place both halves of all your cut rolls on the grill and leave there until the undersides are toasty brown, then remove.

5. To put your sliders together, first put the bottoms of the rolls down, followed by the pork tenderloin, and pineapple ring on top of that. Next, drizzle some teriyaki sauce on top of the pineapple and finish the slider by adding the top portion of the rolls.
