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.
