TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

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

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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 meat thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • 3. 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!"

"This was really good. The whole family enjoyed, even my son who doesn't usually like spicy food."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 29, 2011

"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."
