Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Fresh Fruit Salsa

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, May Spring 2008

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup very finely chopped garlic
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 1 tablespoon very finely chopped fresh marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 to 1 pound each), trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • Fresh Fruit Salsa, for serving

Directions

  1. Combine olive oil, garlic, orange juice, marjoram, and orange zest in a resealable plastic bag; add tenderloins, seal, and marinate, refrigerated, overnight.

  2. Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove tenderloin from marinade, discarding marinade. Wipe excess marinade from pork and season with salt and pepper. Add pork to grill and cook, turning every 4 minutes, until grill marks appear and internal temperature of pork reaches 135 to 140 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, about 21 minutes total. Set aside and let cool completely.

  3. Slice cooled pork crosswise into thin slices. Serve with fruit salsa.

    Great for summer! I grilled mine on the BBQ and didn't bother to wipe off the marinade. The grill gave it a nice flavor! Goes great with a coconut rice and a springy salad with fruit and nuts.

    Jellybean,
    What else did you serve with this dish? I am putting the pork in the marinade tonight for tomorrow night's dinner. Not sure what veggies or starch would compliment the fruit salsa.
    Thanks!

    This was a very easy dish to prepare and everyone raved about it. The pork was very tender and the fresh fruit salsa went with it perfectly. A keeper.
