Lime BBQ Pork Tenderloin

This is one of our favorite recipes. It’s super easy if you whip up the marinade in the morning and then just leave it in the fridge all day. Then it just takes a few minutes on the BBQ. This was inspired by Sarah Foster’s Casual Cooking, a truly great cookbook. Her version, though, uses orange zest and juice. It turns out, I don’t like orange as a flavor. But since the recipe was nearly perfect in every other respect, we switched to lime which gave it an amazing, almost Jamaican jerk flavor. We often double the sauce to have extra. When tenderloins come in a pack of 2, freeze one in the marinade, and it’s ready to go as soon as it thaws.
