Pork tenderloin is a very tender and versatile meat that easily absorbs whatever flavour you’re in the mood for, like orange mustard marinade. It’s perfect for your grill!
Yield: serves 4
2 pork tenderloins
1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 cup grainy mustard
1 or 2 sprinkles sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Whisk the orange juice concentrate and mustard together. Season the pork tenderloins, pour the marinade over them and marinate for a few hours, or even overnight.
Preheat your barbecue to its highest setting.
Grill the tenderloins for 10 minutes or so on each side, until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 155 °F (68 °C). Let rest for 5 or 10 minutes before slicing.
You can add some personalized flavour to the marinade with the spice of your choice. Ground cumin, coriander, ginger, chili powder and curry powder are all excellent choices. Instead of grilling feel free to roast this pork loin in a 400 °F (200 °C) oven for 20 minutes.
The only thing better than a fire-grilled steak is the same steak with a round of flavoured butter slowly melting overtop, forming a rich, tasty sauce as it mingles with the steak’s juices. For the ultimate grilled steak experience, try taking the time to build a hardwood fire in your backyard!
