Pacific rim sesame pork tenderloin

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds Pork tenderloin
3 larges Lime; juiced
2 smalls Garlic clove; minced
1 small Shallot; diced fine
1 small Jalapeno; seeded and minced
3 tablespoons Ginger root; minced
3 tablespoons Apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Sesame seeds
1 tablespoon Toasted sesame oil
Salt and pepper to taste

For the marinade, finely mince or use food processor to mince ginger root, garlic, shallot and jalapeno. Combine with remaining ingredients. Whisk until blended. In a small plastic storage bag place pork with marinade and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Place charcoal in a pyramid shape and light with either lighter fluid, electric starter or chimney starter. Wait until coals are gray and spread in a single layer for the direct heat method. Spray grid with non-stick spray and let grid heat over the hot coals (the hotter the grid, the less chance the food will stick). Place pork on hot grid, discard the marinade.

Cook 15-17 minutes on each side or until the juices run clear. Prior to removal, spoon on additional sesame seeds.

Remove and slice on an angle for service.
