Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple and Papaya Salsa
Ingredients
  • Pork Loin:
  • 2  pounds  pork tenderloins
  • 2  teaspoons  olive oil
  • 2  teaspoons  chili powder (hot-style, if desired)
  • 1  teaspoon  ground ancho chile pepper
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1  teaspoon  dried oregano, crushed
  • Pineapple and Papaya Salsa:
  • 8  ounces  fresh pineapple, cut in 1/2-inch dice (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 8  ounces  papaya, peeled and cut in 1/2-inch dice (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 2  green onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1/4  cup  chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded lime peel
  • 1  tablespoon  freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 2  tablespoons  pumpkin seeds (pipitas), toasted
  •  Cilantro sprigs
Directions

1. Trim fat from the pork. Rub pork with the olive oil. In a small bowl combine the chili powder, ancho chile pepper, cumin, oregano, 1 teaspoon black pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt. Rub mixture all over pork until well coated. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes or cover and refrigerate up to 2 hours.

2. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Place pork on greased grill rack over drip pan. Cover; grill 30 to 35 minutes or until slightly pink in the center (155 degrees F). (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Place pork on greased rack on unheated side of grill. Cover; grill as above.) Remove pork from grill; tent with foil and let rest 15 minutes.

3. To serve, cut pork into very thin slices and place on a platter. Top with Pineapple and Papaya Salsa, pumpkin seeds, and cilantro sprigs. Makes 6 servings.
