HEALTHY RECIPE: Chipotle-Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Ingredients

Prep: 30 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours (including 1 hour marinating time)

  • 1 canned chipotle chile in adobo plus 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 8 ounces pork tenderloin

MAKE SURE TO TRIM THE FAT OFF THE MEAT

Instructions

  1. Combine chipotle and sauce, garlic, orange juice, lime juice, vinegar, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper in a blender or mini food processor; blend or process until the chipotle is chopped and the mixture is relatively smooth. Pour into a sealable plastic bag, add pork and seal, squeezing out any excess air from the bag. Turn to coat with the marinade. Refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
  2. Preheat grill to high or heat a large indoor grill pan over high heat. Remove the pork from the marinade (discard marinade). Grill the pork, turning occasionally until an instant-read thermometer inserted diagonally into the center of the meat registers 145° F, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Tip: Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are smoked jalapenos packed in a flavorful sauce. You can find them with Mexican foods in large supermarkets.
