“Lean and tender, pork tenderloins are perfect for the grill. This zesty marinade makes tenderloins even more tender than they already are.” - by Dave Nash
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Place lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and oregano in a large resealable plastic bag. Shake sealed bag until ingredients are well mixed. Taste the marinade for tartness. If too tart, add a little more oil. Not enough zing, add more lime. The garlic and salt flavors should also be up front, yet not overpowering. Place tenderloins in the bag, seal, and turn to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 5 hours.
- Preheat grill for medium heat.
- Lightly oil the grill grate, and discard marinade. Grill tenderloins for 20 to 30 minutes, turning once, or to desired doneness.

(Since it's winter and quite cold here in Ottawa, Canada, I couldn't use my bbq so I used the oven instead).

"Bar none, this is one of the tastiest ways to prepare pork tenderloin I have ever tried. I accidentally forgot to add the oregano, and it was STILL just great. Next time, of course, I will try to re..." See moremember the oregano! Per some of the other reviews, I halved all the marinade ingredients and had plenty for 2 tenderloins. I used fresh lemon juice to make it "authentic" Greek, rather than lime juice, minced about 1/3 of the garlic for the marinade & made slits in the tenderloins & inserted the garlic slices. We cooked it on our gas grill over indirect heat for exactly 25 minutes (to 160 degrees), and it was superb! Thanks, Dave, for this keeper of a recipe."
