Fall is prime grilling season, even more so then summer. At times in the summer it’s just too hot outside to be standing by a grill that’s heated to 450 degrees. In the fall the air is cool and crisp which is perfect for grilling meat.
This week #SundaySupper challenged us to make a meal with 5 ingredients or less. I had a really hard time coming up with a dish that only had 5 ingredients but I’m happy I did. It’s nice to have simple dishes in my repertoire because they are quick and easy.
Thinking of grilling and of using only 5 ingredients I went looking for larger pieces of meat such as pork tenderloin, london broil, and steaks. I’ve found it’s easier to grill one large piece of meat then to worry about a ton of little pieces. Many time I use marinades that are pre-made or I just end up throwing things into a zip top bag and then putting the meat in over top of it.
This pork came from a very simple recipe and smelled amazing while it was grilling. The spiciness of the chipotle chiles smelled divine with the citrus in the lime juice. The pork came out perfectly with a crisp outside and juicy inside. I was surprised by the amount of flavor in the pork and enjoyed the spicy lime and garlic.
Chipotle Honey Lime Pork Tenderloin (adapted from So Tasty So Yummy)
1-2 lb. pork tenderloin
1/4 c. lime juice
2 T. honey
1 t. kosher salt
1 t. black pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, chopped
1. Place the pork tenderloin in a large zip top bag.
2. Combine all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour over top of the pork loin. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
3. Ten minutes before cooking remove the pork loin from the refrigerator. Heat the grill to medium high heat.
4. Remove the pork loin from the marinade and place on the grill. Cook on one side for 5 minutes and then flip over to the other side for 5 minutes.
5. Continue to rotate the pork tenderloin every 5 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. Remove from the grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
6. Slice into thin pieces and serve hot.
