Grilled Pork Tenderloin & Veggies Recipe
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each)

Reviews for Grilled Pork Tenderloin & Veggies
"Very very tasty. I marinated the pork for 24 hours and grilled it for almost 30 minutes, and it was moist and perfect. My carrots were really skinny, so I didn't halve them, and I cut the zucchini into quarters lengthwise. The veggies were nicely done in 10 minutes, turning once at the halfway mark. I like being able to do the whole meal on the grill, so this is a keeper."
"This recipe was delicious! We love making pork on the grill and have tried many recipes. This recipe gives you a tender, moist tenderloin. We tried the veggies but I didn't watch them closely enough so I burnt them. Make sure you watch them closely!"
