Serves 4 (serving size: about 3 ounces pork and 1/2 cup pineapple mixture)

We cut the tenderloin in half before grilling for a nicely charred crust and a juicy inside in half the time.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Rub jerk seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon salt evenly over pork. Add pork to grill; grill 12 to 14 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145°, turning occasionally. Place pork on a platter. Cover with foil; let stand 5 minutes. Cut across the grain into slices.

Step 3

Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Arrange pineapple slices on grill; cook 3 minutes on each side or until well marked. Remove from grill; chop. Combine pineapple, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, onion, and remaining ingredients in a bowl. Serve with pork.

Wonderful for a fast meal

I seasoned the pork loin 60 minutes prior to grilling - did not halve it - 25 minutes total with a rest for 5.  The salsa was fantastic thought I couldn't find a Fresno chili, I subbed half a serrano instead.  We served this dish in flour tortillas, making them into soft tacos.  Wonderful.  Diced avocado on the side and we had a simple dinner on the table in short order.  The family loved it too (teenager did add cheese).  Will definitely make again and seek out the Fresno chili next time.

A keeper!

Delicious!  Served with steamed rice, wish we'd had black beans with it...we will next time!

Great Salsa

The grilled pineapple salsa really made this dish.  It was terrific in combination with the pork.  Served it with roasted green beans and asparagus.  Will definitely make again.

Loved the grilled pineapple salsa! Next time I will cut the olive oil in half, though. Loved the flavor of the jerk seasoning against the salsa. I served over a little brown rice, my teenagers and husband all loved it.

I could not find the McCormick Jerk seasoning so I made my own using a recipe from the myrecipes web site.  I also did not cut the tenderloin in half as I thought it would cook too fast on the grill.  The salsa was out of this world.  I did not use all of the oil--just added enough so that the pineapple was not "sitting" in it.  I served it with Trader Joe's Rice and Orzo Pilaf and a salad.  Will make again!

Delicious. Served with Zatarains Caribbean Rice. As someone else mentioned, I used less olive oil (2 tbs). 

Quick and easy

Tasty and simple to prepare. We served this with maduros (sauteed plantains) and rice and beans on the side.
