This recipe I have had for a while from an unknown magazine, calls for you to marinate your pork.  The amount of time is up to you, 30 minutes, 4 hours, or overnight.  Whichever way you choose, it is moist and delicious!

Gather Up:

  • 1 to 2 pound pork tenderloin
  • Juice from one orange
  • Juice from one grapefruit
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 2 to 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp of cumin
  • 1 /2 tsp oregano
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of red pepper flakes

Put juice into a plastic bag, toss in spices.  Shake.  Place tenderloin in bag and then let marinate for specific amount of time in refrigerator.

When ready to cook, heat grill to 400 degrees until thermometer inserted reads about 145 degrees F, approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
