    Wrap it with bacon and put it in the BBQ.

    Easy to do if you have a talent with knives. Remove all the fat (by hand) first then remove the silverskin that you will find under the fat. The silverskin can be tricky to remove cleanly (that's the reason for being good with a knife). If you get it started from the tail (small flat end) I have seen beginners use a dull knife or the back edge of a knife and kind of tear it off in strips. Then all you have to do is slice steaks the size you like. If it is a lesser grade of meat and not much fat in it, wrap it in bacon and that will help add flavor to the meat as it cooks. Most of the flavor from grilled meats comes from the marbeling in it. Good luck. jrton80

    Make a simple rub of salt pepper and garlic powder and maybe a few other things that you like. Cook it indirect on the grill WITH and meat thermometer to med rare. (Indirect method) let rest for 10 min. and slice and serve. Takes about and hour start to eating.

    Butterfly it, stuff with bannana peppers and cream cheese, then wrap in bacon. Cook until complete on the grill, stove top or over, which ever you prefer.

    Be certain that the meat is at room temperature prior to cooking. Use olive oil as a rub--all over--then use your favorite seasonings and grill. Turn it over only once at a 90 degree angle--use a thermometer-- Enjoy.Or cut prior to the sizes you like and grill as described.Medium heat and watch for flare ups from the grease dripping to the burners.

    I have a recipe from Dionne Lucas(I think) that involves putting on some pate and wrapping it with pershrudo, then putting the whole thing in Brioch dough and baking it. Otherwise, I like jrton80's approach and wrap some bacon on it. I did the Dionne recipe once. Took all day, but it was outstanding. She was a teacher at Cordon Bleu in Paris. E-mail me if you want the recipe.

    Coat it in salt, let rest at room temp for 30 minuts. Wipe off all the salt with paper towel, coat in oil, sear all sides in very hot cast iron skillet outdoors. Season with garlic and pepper.

    finish in oven or grill until med rare.

    If its pork(haven't tried others yet) take a long blade and poke a hole through it lengthwise and stuff a smoked sausage inside. then bake or grill. it's really good and a change from just another loin.
