  1. I made this with a little over 2 lbs of tenderloin. I used freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, as it is in peak season and followed the rest of the recipe as written. I grilled some onion to go with the grilled meat and served it with rice pilaf and green beans for a fantastic meal. We really enjoyed the citrus flavored pork. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Adopt A Tag Event.
  2. My boyfriend sliced the pork tenderloin and then put the slices in the marinade. They turned out juicy and so yummy. I love how simple the marinade was. Thanks AZPARZYCH :) Made for PRMR tag game
