"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.
