  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Dash cayenne pepper

  • Grill pork, covered, over indirect medium heat for 20-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
    Freeze option: Freeze uncooked pork in bag with marinade. To use, completely thaw in refrigerator. Grill as directed.

    To end my review on a positive note,I recommend this grilled pork loin recipe instead: is terrific and I've made it many times.

    I was not impressed with the flavor combination. My husband said this tasted like lemon dish detergent. I like to give positive reviews, but this one I can't (and I try to rate everything I try from this website). Sorry.
