Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The National Pork Board and the #GrillPork campaign, however, all thoughts, opinions and tantalizingly tasty recipes are mine alone. Enjoy!
If you grew up in, moved to, or live in the South, you know grilling is pretty much one of our favorite pastimes. It falls somewhere in between our love of magnolias, pearls and and our unquenchable thirst for sweet tea. Due to my Army Brat status, I can't technically claim one state (or country for that matter) as my home, but being married to a true southern boy pretty much makes me a southern by default. Which is why you can typically walk into our home any day of the week and find us grilling something.
A few weeks days ago, my local Walmart had an outrageous sale on pork that was just too good to pass up. And the timing could literally not be more perfect, since this month I've partnered up with The National Pork Board to bring you guys some healthy pork fixing for the grill this summer. Being a shopper of the savvy variety, I quickly pounced on the sale. And now our entire freezer is now stocked with enough pork to feed us for the next month or so. Hence my current delima. Too much pork and only so many days of summer left. Challenge accepted...
All week long I'll be sharing some of my absolute favorite pork recipes, and today I'm kicking off this party with this tantalizingly tasty grilled pork tenderloin with mango relish. If you enjoy a tender blend of sweet and savory, with just a small bit of a bite, you'll go crazy for this grilled pork tenderloin with mango relish. In addition to this delightfully tasty recipe, The National Pork Board is giving one of my one of my loyal readers two chances to win BIG!
But more on that later. For now, check out this delicious recipe.
Ingredients1/3 cup olive oil
1 medium onion
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup sweet red chili sauce
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp Sriracha sauce
1 lb of pork tenderloin
Corn-mango Salsa1 cup of fresh pineapple
1 cup of fresh mango
1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped sweet onion
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon snipped fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
InstructionsIn a large bowl, combine seasoning, onion and garlic powder, red chili sauce, honey, and Sriracha sauce. Mix well. Add the tenderloin to the container. Toss to tenderloin. Allow mixture to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Remember: the longer you allow your meat to marinate, the more juicy and tender they will be.
Once the marinade has had time to soak the chops, place tenderloin on grill and cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes. Be sure to turn periodically, allowing each side to fully cook. Use left over marinate to brush over pork every so often.
While your tenderloin is cooking, in a separate bowl, combine, pineapple, mango , red bell pepper, onion, lemon juice, oil, cilantro and salt. Stir well. Set aside in refrigerator.
Remove tenderloin from grill and top with mango relish. Serve with a a side of rice and a smile.
