"Cuban mojo sauce is often served with roast pork, but for weeknight summer grilling, a tenderloin is quick and amazingly delicious. This is from our local grocery store flyer. Cooking time does not include marinating time."

Step 1

Pat pork dry. Season generously with salt and pepper. Rub with citrus zest, oregano and garlic. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to 4.

Step 2

In the meantime, prepare the sauce. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and let sit for at least 30 minutes for flavors to meld. May refrigerate at this time but let come to room temperature before serving.

Step 3

To cook pork, heat grill to medium-high heat. Remove pork from refrigerator to allow to come to room temperature as grill heats. Oil grill, then grill pork (turning often) to internal temperature of 145°F, about 15-20 minutes (pork will have slight blush of pink in center). Let rest 5 minutes, then slice thinly diagonally. Serve with mojo sauce on side. Refrigerate any leftovers.

This mojo pork is just fabulous! I loved the meat just as it was, right off the grill. But when you add the mojo sauce - wowzers! I served this with saffron rice and steamed broccoli, and ended up putting the mojo on everything on the plate!!! So garlicky, citrusy, and delicious! Thanks for sharing - this recipe is a keeper and will definitely be on our summer rotation!

Very flavorful with the orange/lime zest and oregano and so easy to make. The tenderloins grilled up so nice and tender and the mojo sauce was really delicious. Have plenty of leftovers and have lots of plans for them. : )
