Asian Grilled Pork Tenderloin

YIELD: 6 servings


2 - pork tenderloins (about 3/4 lb. each)

Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish

1/3 cup - soy sauce

1/4 cup - honey

1/4 cup - fresh lime juice

2 Tablespoons - olive or vegetable oil

3 cloves - garlic, finely chopped

1 Tablespoon - curry powder

1 Tablespoon - grated fresh ginger

1/2 teaspoon - ground black pepper


In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, lime juice, oil, garlic, curry powder, ginger and black pepper; mix until well blended. Place pork tenderloins in a plastic bag; pour marinade over pork in bag. Close bag tightly; marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour or up to overnight. Remove pork from marinade; reserve marinade. Grill over medium coals 20 to 25 minutes for medium doneness, turning after first 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place reserved marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Serve with sliced pork; garnish with cilantro.


For a vegetarian version, replace pork with 1-1/2 pounds of extra firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch slices; marinate as directed. Grill over medium coals 6 to 8 minutes, turning once.
