  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Soak twine in water 10 minutes to prevent burning. Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in brown sugar, mustard and chili powder. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Pour 1/4 cup sauce into small bowl; reserve for serving. Leave remaining sauce in saucepan for basting pork.
  • 2
    Insert knife one-third of way up from bottom of tenderloin along 1 long side and cut horizontally, stopping 1/2 inch before edge. Open up flap.
  • 3
    Keeping knife parallel to cutting board, cut through thicker portion of tenderloin about 1/2 inch from bottom of tenderloin, keeping knife level with first cut and stopping about 1/2 inch before edge. Open up this flap.
  • 4
    Press sides of tenderloin down so it lies flat. Cover with plastic wrap; pound with flat side of meat mallet to 1/2 inch thick.
  • 5
    Place cheese down center of tenderloin; top with ham.
  • 6
    Arrange pickles on top of ham. Sprinkle garlic evenly over filling.
  • 7
    Tightly roll up tenderloin lengthwise.
  • 8
    Tie tenderloin tightly with twine.
  • 9
    Brush tenderloin with oil, then rub in salt and pepper. Place seam side up on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 15 minutes.
  • 10
    Turn pork; brush with remaining glaze in saucepan and grill 10 to 15 minutes longer or until meat thermometer inserted in center of tenderloin reads 145°F. Transfer to cutting board; cover with foil, and let stand 5 minutes. Cut and discard twine. Cut tenderloin into slices with serrated knife. Serve with the 1/4 cup reserved sauce.

Expert Tips

  • Worried about keeping the tenderloin tightly rolled while tying? Use toothpicks to secure edge before tying with twine. Remove toothpicks before grilling.
  • Like it hot? Use spicy dill pickles instead of plain.
