Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh gingerroot

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)
  • 1 fresh pineapple, cut into 12 slices

Nutritional Facts

5 ounces cooked pork with 3 pineapple slices equals 295 calories, 6 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 95 mg cholesterol, 523 mg sodium, 23 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 36 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 5 lean meat, 1 fruit.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Pour 2/3 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. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  3. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Place pork over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 25-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
  4. Meanwhile, grill pineapple slices for 2-3 minutes on each side or until heated through; serve with pork. Yield: 4 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 11, 2012

this is good and easy. I cooked it in the oven, since it was too cold to grill.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 14, 2011

Hubby liked it, which is always a winner as he is very picky. I had issues with my grill this night so it took twice as long to cook, will rate again next time i try it to see if that improves with a non-finicky grill nite.

This is a great meal. My whole family enjoyed it and it was so healthy. I served it with grilled asparagus also - yum!
