    acerast's Note:

    I love Cuban cuisine for its blend of Spanish, African and Carribbean cooking styles and flavors. This is one of those recipes that requires simple preparation the night before and then goes on the grill or in the oven for a quick but delicious meal. From "Home Cooking with the Uncommon Gourmet" by Ellen Helman.

      To say this was fabulous is an understatement. This is my favorite pork recipe. I marinated it for 5 hours and then grilled for 5 mins on all 4 sides. You could cut the tenderloin with a fork. I did not baste it because I wanted it to have a crisp outer layer. Everyone loved it even my picky daughter. When tenderloins go on sale again I am going to make these up and freeze them. Thanks so much for sharing.

      This marinade is yummy. It gave the pork a wonderful taste. A bit juicy. It was in the marinade overnight. Thanks Acerast. Made for the Saucy Senoritas of ZWT5
