The marinade on these pork medallions is intense, so it takes only a few minutes to impart flavor. Sunset reader Karen Fukui of Olympia, Washington, shared the recipe.
Heat grill to high (450° to 550°). In a food processor, pulse all ingredients except for pork into a paste, adding a bit of water if needed. In a medium bowl, mix pork with paste. Let sit 15 minutes.
Grill pork, turning once, until browned, about 6 minutes total. Serve with rice, vegetables, and cilantro leaves.

If you're starting the meat ahead of cooking and want to marinate it longer, leave the tenderloin whole.
