Summertime brings warm breezes, fresh air and long hours outdoors taking it all in. Summertime also means lots of bratwurst, burgers and other foods that aren’t too good for those of us who are prone to heart disease. Being a warm-blooded carnivore, I can’t make myself eat a vegetarian meal all that often. So I started searching for some delicious alternatives and came up with this pork tenderloin recipe.
Pork tenderloin is an underutilized meat. It is significantly less expensive than beef, still has elements of being a very good cut, and has the health benefit of a white meat. Here’s a simple meal with more than a simple taste:
- 2 pork tenderloins
- 2/3 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/3 cup of minced cilantro leaves
- 2 tbsp crushed ginger
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- Prepare marinade by mixing soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, cilantro, ginger, and brown sugar in medium bowl. Stir until well mixed and sugar is dissolved.
- Place tenderloins into a ziplock bag and pour in marinade. Try to keep as little air in the bag as possible and let it sit for 2 – 6 hours.
- Grill on medium heat turning occasionally. Using a meat thermometer, cook until the center is 140 degrees. This should take approximately 15-18 minutes.
- After grilling, make sure to let the tenderloins rest on a platter for 5 minutes before carving.
