Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup honey Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
  • Chopped honey-roasted peanuts, optional

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
Drain and discard marinade from pork. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill pork, covered, over indirect medium-hot heat for 25-40 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
Heat reserved mustard mixture; brush over pork before serving. Sprinkle with peanuts if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

"I cut the recipe down for the 2 of us and used pork bits that was labeled for stir fry. Marinated it for 1 hour, baked it (too ugly outside for grill) . It is EXCELLENT!"

"I actually baked this in the oven instead of grilling. It has a lot of good flavor and using the extra sauce definitely gives it a lot of spice! I wish I had remembered to use the honey-roasted peanuts because they could have cooled it down a bit."
