  1. OMG, OH WOW, OH YEAH! This is fabulous! Absolutely delicious without a long list of ingredients. I grilled the pork to perfection tonight (HOORAH for me!) and we all loved it so much! Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers!
  2. This was a nice way to prepare pork tenderloin. I found the quantities for the marinade more than I needed so I use about 3/4 cup of juice and 1/3 cup of oil and marinated it in my Food Savor marintating tray. My loin was about 1 1/2 lbs. it was a wide short piece so I cut it in half to allow more contact with the marinade. I used 1/2 lime and 1/2 fresh grapefruit juice. Our weather wasn't cooperating with grilling so I seared the loin in my cast iron frying pan then put it in the oven and roasted at 350 degrees. I basted it during the cooking with some of the left over marinade, I removed as much of oil as I could from the marinade before using. After removing the meat from the pan, which had lots of nice brown crustys, I reduced added the rest of the defatted marinade and reduced it down, it was extremly tangy so I whisked in about a half cup of heavy cream this made for a lovely tangy gravy. Thanks Lynn for sharing! Made for ZWT 6 for the Unrulies Under the Influence
  3. Yummers! This is an excellent way to prepare pork tenderloin. Very flavorful.
  4. Nice Mediterranean flavor in this. I made 1/8 of the marinade for that amount of meat (except the lime - I used lemon and used 1/4 of what the recipe called for).
  5. So great and easy to make. I used less lime juice, about 1 cup and less oil, about 1/3 cup. We grilled it outside and served it with a Greek meal and it is delicious! Made for ZWT #9 and the Hotties!!
