Sweet and Spicy Grilled Pork Tenderloin
It’s grilling season. Enjoy!
• 1 whole pork tenderloin trimmed of fat (about 1 pound)
• Zest of 1 lemon
• 1/2 cup lemon juice
• 1/4 cup honey
• 2 teaspoons salt
• 3 garlic cloves, crushed
• 1 tablespoon chili powder, or to taste
Combine lemon zest and juice, honey, salt, garlic, and chili powder in a resealable plastic bag. Add pork tenderloin, remove as much air as possible, and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours (up to 24 hours). Rotate occasionally.
Remove tenderloin, preheat grill to medium, and discard bag with remaining marinade. Brush grates with vegetable oil, and place tenderloin in center of barbecue. Cover grill. Turn pork every 2 minutes until it reaches an internal temperature of 120 degrees (10-12 minutes). Place on a cutting board. Cover the tenderloin with foil for 8-10 minutes. Slice and serve with lemon wedges and sides of your choice.
