Recipe by Michelle Figueroa

These Tenderloins are very Yummy

Top Review by gemini08

The flavors of the marinade are FAN-tastic! Just the right balance of acidic - spicy - garlicky. I made this on an electric grill, it took about 20 minutes to reach 160F. One thing I would like to point out to chef Michelle, the directions are a bit vague. I wasn't sure if I should make a paste and grill the meat right away or marinade it for a while. I ended up marinading it for @ 6 hours and basted the meat while on the grill, then let it rest for @ 10 minutes, it was tender and juicy and super tasty! Made for my 3 chefs tag game, June 2012.
