Jamaican Pork Tenderloin

This recipe is perfect for barbecues and parties! A spicy citrus marinade adds plenty of flavor to the tenderloin overnight. Then you can grill the meat in just minutes the next day. —Rosetta Hockett of Colorado Springs, Colorado

    Absolutely delicious! This is by far the best pork tenderloin I've ever had. I prepared it for company and everyone raved about how juicy, tender and flavorful this dish was. I'll definitely be making this again!
