  • 2 pork tenderloins I used 2 pork tenderloins over a pound each


  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

Honey Garlic Paste:

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Green Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/3 cup parsley finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup green onions finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a medium bowl combine all the marinade ingredients, pierce the pork with a fork all over the surface and add it to the bowl. Cover and marinate for 2-3 hours or 24 hours.
  2. In another medium bowl combine all the Paste ingredients, when ready to grill the pork. Stir until smooth.
  3. Remove pork tenderloin from marinade, pat dry and spread the paste generously over it.
  4. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Grill pork for about 20 minutes, turning occasionally with tongs until charred and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 145 degrees F. For larger tenderloins, cook longer until desired internal temperature is reached.

Green Sauce:

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together all ingredients and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Let the pork rest 10 minutes, then slice and serve with the sauce.
