1/2 Cup Green Bell Pepper, Diced
1/2 Cup Onion, diced
1 Can (2.8 oz. ) French Fried Onions, Divided

RECIPE: BBQ Pork Tenderloin & Vegetable Rice
4 Ears Corn on the Cob, (husks and silk removed)
1 Large Red Pepper, Quartered, Seeded
1/3 Cup Original Barbecue Sauce, Divided
2 Cups Hot Cooked Long-grain Brown Rice

Heat greased grill to medium-high heat. Grill meat, corn and peppers 12 to 15 mins. or until meat is done (160ºF) and vegetables are crisp-tender, turning occasionally and brushing with 1/4 cup barbecue sauce the last 5 min. Remove meat from grill; tent with foil. Cut corn kernels from cobs; coarsely chop peppers. Combine corn, peppers and rice. Spoon remaining sauce over meat. Serve with rice mixture.

When cooking the entire meal on the grill, plan ahead so that fast-cooking foods are added to the grill last. It's okay if the meat is done before the other foods. Just place it on a clean platter, then cover with foil and let it stand up to 10 min. or until the other grilled foods are done. Standing allows the meat juices to be absorbed into the meat, resulting in better flavor.
