Very flavorful, strong without being spicy hot. It was perfect as-is for my husband and I, and now I can't wait to make it for his mother, sister and whole family. Followed the previous reviewer's lead on making additional marinade for a black bean and corn side dish - thank you for that suggestion! This dish is definitely a keeper!
Margarita Pork Tenderloin
Margarita lovers will devour this delicious pork tenderloin, which gets its flavor from a tequila-based marinade. You'll need an hour for the tenderloin to marinate, but just 15 minutes to grill to perfection.
