Goodness gracious it’s HOT! We are having a heat wave and have maxed out at 103 degrees some days. Ugh. The heat makes cooking inside unbearable and I can hear my A/C unit groaning every time I turn on the oven. And yet I am tired of saying, “Kids let’s just have cereal for dinner because Mommy is too hot to cook.” So I tried something new and I’m sharing the goodness with you. I made DELICIOUS Chili Lime Pork Tenderloin on our grill using this yummy Smithfield Pork Tenderloin that is already marinated. It’s so so quick and easy and I am lovin’ the southwest flavor. Best of all, I didn’t have to turn on my oven.
Open your marinated pork tenderloin into a bowl. Dump in all the marinade that came with it too. Sprinkled the other half of the chili powder on top of the pork. Pour the lime/honey mixture on top of the pork and it will be added to the marinade.
Fire up your grill! When the grill is nice and hot, coat with a little oil to keep it from sticking if needed. Then place your pork on it and brush it with the marinade juice leftover in the bowl. Shut the lid and let it cook for 1-2 minutes. Then open it and turn the pork to another side. Brush again with marinade and shut the lid for another 1-2 minutes. Repeat this process until you have cooked all sides and continually brushed with marinade for a total of 12-15 MINUTES. Make sure your meat reaches the safe 140 degree internal temperature.
