Cuban Pork Tenderloin
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Marinating time: 30 minutes
1 1/2 pounds pork
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup grapefruit juice
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Using a thin knife, trim silver skin from tenderloin. Mix orange
juice, grapefruit juice, cilantro, cumin, oregano, garlic, salt, and hot pepper
in gallon-sized zip-top plastic bag. Add pork, close, and refrigerate for at
least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours. Meanwhile, make Rice
and Black Bean Salad.
Prepare outdoor grill for direct medium-hot grilling. For a gas grill, preheat grill on high. Adjust temperature to 400°F. For a charcoal grill, build fire and let burn until coals are covered with white ash. Spread coals and let burn for 15-20 minutes.
Lightly oil cooking grate. Remove pork from marinade, drain briefly, but do not scrape off solids. Place on grill and cover grill. Cook, turning occasionally, until browned and instant-read thermometer inserted in center of pork reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, about 20-27 minutes. Transfer to carving board and let stand 3-5 minutes. Cut on slight diagonal and serve with rice and black bean salad.
