You should definitely have a margarita while you put this meal together. Or a Mexican Martini. I did......
For 2 littles and 2 bigs, we used only one tenderloin, so halve marinade if that works best for you.
Margarita Pork Tenderloin
3 garlic cloves, minced
NOT 1 green onion
1/2 jalapeno pepper, minced
3T chopped fresh cilantro
2T fresh lime juice
1 1/2 T tequila
1 T fresh orange juice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 pork tenderloins
*I added a little cumin to the marinade*
Combine everything except tenderloin into gallon Ziploc bag. Cut pork diagonally into 1-inch think slices, and add to marinade. Seal and chill about an hour, turning/mixing occasionally.
(this is the beautiful view inside the bag!)
Remove pork from marinade, discarding marinade.
Grill, covered, over high heat (400-500 degrees) 3-4 minutes on each side or until done.
Easy and delicious!
