Sunshine Fair Grilled Pork Tenderloin

For the Sunshine Fair, each member of the food committee was to multiply this recipe by 70 and grill the meat at home the night before the fair. It was getting dark when I started to grill so when Rich got home, we moved the floor lamp to the deck so we could see to finish grilling. Cooking this on our family vacation to the Northwest Angle has become a family tradition.

6 large garlic cloves, chopped
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. fresh ginger root, grated
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/3 C. fresh lime juice
1/2 C. olive oil
Cayenne pepper to taste
4 pork tenderloins, about 3/4 lb. each, trimmed

MARINADE: In blender or small food processor, blend marinade ingredients with salt and pepper to taste. Put pork in large sealable plastic bag with marinade. Seal bag, pressing out excess air and put in a shallow baking dish. Marinate pork, chilled, turning occasionally, at least 1 day and up to 2 days.

Prepare grill. Let pork stand at room temperature about 30 minutes before grilling. Remove pork from marinade, grill on oiled rack, turning every 5 minutes, until meat thermometer registers 160º, about 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer meat to a cutting board and let stand 5 minutes before slicing.

Serves 6

NOTE: We always cook enough so that we can have cold pork sandwiches.
