BBQ Pork Loin with Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I debated on what to name this dish - "BBQ Pork..." or "Bringing Sexy Back"??? This is one good looking...and tasting dish!

2 2" boneless pork loin
BBQ sauce to marinate and brush when grilling
2 large red skinned potatoes, quartered
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup milk
Salt & pepper, to taste
2 green onion stalks, minced

In a pot with a steamer, steam potatoes until fork tender, about 15-20 minutes. Remove steamer with potatoes from pot, drain water from pot. Add garlic, butter and milk to pot and return to stove top over low heat; stirring until butter melts, allowing garlic to cook. Add potatoes back into pot and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in green onions and set aside.

Preheat grill to medium heat. Depending on thickness of meat, cook until center of pork is pink or internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Brush pork with BBQ sauce throughout grilling process and once removed from grill.

Serve grilled pork and mashed potatoes with a side salad or a serving of steamed veggies.

Note: Steaming, instead of boiling, potatoes keeps a nice potato flavor and you're not boiling all the nutrients out.
