Citrus Marinated Pork (serves 4)

Citrus Marinated Pork (serves 4)

Recently, I watch the movie ‘Chef’ and loved it. Was intrigued by the pork he made on his food truck so did a little digging and came up with something like it. Marinade is a blend of orange, lemon, lime juices, garlic, fresh oregano and oil and I placed the tenderloin in a zip lock bag for at least 2 hours before cooking. I added the pulp of the fruit into the marinade too. Served it with spicy black beans (2 x cans black beans, 2 cups stock, 1 tsp. Creole seasoning.

1 x pork tenderloin
4 x garlic cloves – finely chopped
Handful of fresh oregano – finely chopped
Juice of one orange
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Juice of 1/2 a lime
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Place all marinade ingredients in a Ziploc bag and add tenderloin.
Place in fridge.
Turn over a few times during the marinading process.
