  • 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.

  • 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.
