Asian Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Makes 6 Servings

  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 3/4 lb. each)
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

  • 1 Tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 Tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, lime juice, oil, garlic, curry powder, ginger and black pepper; mix until well blended. Place pork tenderloins in a plastic bag; pour marinade over pork in bag. Close bag tightly; marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour or up to overnight. Remove pork from marinade; reserve marinade. Grill over medium coals 20 to 25 minutes for medium doneness, turning after first 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place reserved marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Serve with sliced pork; garnish with cilantro.
