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
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 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.
Tip: For a vegetarian version, replace pork with 1-1/2 pounds of extra firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch slices; marinate as directed. Grill over medium coals 6 to 8 minutes, turning once.
