Ginger Grilled Tenderloin
Fresh ginger always wakes up tired palates. This Oriental-inspired marinade gives pork tenderloin a new attitude on the grill, and makes this dish perfect for an after-work dinner party—or for family supper. While tenderloins grill quickly, cook white rice to serve garnished with chopped peanuts and sliced green onion. Slice cucumbers and serve in a light vinaigrette with a drained can of mandarin oranges.
2 whole pork tenderloins (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
2 cup chicken broth
4 tablespoon grated ginger
2 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoon sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
- Combine all ingredients in a self-sealing plastic bag; seal bag and refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.
- Remove tenderloins from marinade; discarding marinade.
- Grill tenderloins over medium-hot coals, turning occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes, until thermometer inserted reads 155°F (approxmately 65°C).
- Slice to serve.
Makes 6 servings.
