A lot of the flavor goes away through the high-heat grilling. You can taste a little of the marinade on the outer edges, but it's a little too toasty. I think the marinade is a good collection of ingredients, but should probably be slowly grilled while wrapped in aluminum foil tightly, so the moisture's locked in with the meat and cooks throughout.

Used a meat tenderizer to poke holes in the meat and then marinated for about 4 hours. While the meat cooked on the grill, I cooked down the marinade and added a cornstarch slurry to make a nice sauce. Totally full of flavor and pretty darn healthy for you, too. We enjoyed this and will be making again.

This marinade was fantastic and had great flavour! I think the key to the flavour not being lost is to slice the tenderlion into 1 inch medallions before putting it in the marinade. I only used 1/2 the recipe and there was plenty of marinade to coat all the meat in a large bag. If you slice your pork (or chicken would be great to)o, I would only marinade for 3-5 hours since the lime and orange slightly cooks the meat. Cook the medallions on medium heat 3-4 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F and let it rest for 5 minutes to reach a final 160 degrees F. I did a rough chop of the meat and served in corn tortillas for a mexican dinner.
