Pork Tenderloin with Beer-Lime Marinade
I was looking for a new pork tenderloin recipe to try and came across this one on the Canadian Living website. Pork tenderloin is so good, and pretty lean as well so lower fat compared to other pork products. I like to make sure that I don't over cook it though so it doesn't dry out.
if you'd like the see the nutritional info for this recipe, here is the link to the site: Canadian Living
Here's the recipe:
1/2 cup beers or nonalcoholic_beer ( I used a Rickard's White, if you used a darker beer you might get more of the "beer" flavor... I think this is just a matter of preference...or you can try different ones everytime you make it!)
1/3 cup lime juice
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tbsp minced fresh parsley ( I just used dried, about 1 tsp dried)
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 pork tenderloins, (about 12 oz/375 g each)
In large bowl, whisk together beer, lime juice, garlic, parsley, chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Add pork; turn to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours.
Place pork on greased grill over medium-high heat; brush with any remaining marinade. Close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until just a hint of pink remains inside, about 18 minutes.
Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Slice and serve.
