We grill out every weekend, so I am always looking for something new to cook. We grill a lot of chicken and beef. I found this marinade recipe over at Eating Well. I had a pork tenderloin in the freezer and decided to give it a whirl.
This pork has excellent flavor. It is a little tangy from the citrus juice and it has a little kick from the chipotle. I mixed up the marinade before I went to work and let the pork marinate all day. We threw the pork on the grill and dinner was ready in no time. The pork was tender and juicy and packed full of great flavors! If you don't want to fire up the grill, you can use the oven roasting method I posted last month. Either way, I am sure the pork will taste great!
