Yield: 4
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 85 Minutes

Ingredients


• 1 pork tenderloin, about 12-16 oz.

For the marinade:
• 3-4 Tbs. fresh lime juice
• 2+ Tbs. chopped cilantro
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• Pinch of red pepper flakes
• 1/2 tsp. salt
• 1/4 cup olive oil

For the cream:
• 1 cup heavy cream
• 1 Tbs. Adobo sauce from small can of Chipotles packed in Adobo

Instructions


Combine all the ingredients except for pork in a small bowl to make the marinade. Place the pork in a large plastic bag and pour the marinade into the bag to cover. Close the bag, shake it up to coat the pork. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour. The one hour is enough to impart good flavor, but if you can do 4 hours or so, that’s even better. Heat the grill to med-high.

Remove tenderloin from the marinade. Place on the grill, 15-20 min. on med-high should do it, turning once. Pork tenderloin should still have a bit of pinkness and it will continue to cook when resting. Remove from heat and tent with foil while you make the cream.

To make the cream, pour the heavy cream into a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 5-10 min., until it is reduced to about 3/4 cup. Stir in the Adobo toward the end of cooking. Slice the pork and serve with a bit of cream.
