TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 4 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)

Directions

  • 1. For marinade, in a blender combine the first seven ingredients; cover and process until blended. Divide marinade between two large resealable plastic bags; add two tenderloins to each bag. Seal bags and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • 2. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Drain pork, discarding marinade in bags. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  • 3. Place pork over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 20-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 8 servings.
