Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 green onion , finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander
Marinade:
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon each ground cumin and coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Method

Marinade: In bowl, whisk together orange juice, tomato paste, mustard, garlic, chili powder, sugar, cumin, coriander, Worcestershire sauce and salt. Add pork, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Remove pork from marinade, letting excess drip back into bowl. Pour marinade into small saucepan; set aside.

Place pork on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning 3 times, until browned and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring reserved marinade and 3/4 cup (175 mL) water to boil over high heat; reduce heat and simmer until reduced to 1 cup (250 mL), 7 minutes.

In small bowl, whisk cornstarch with 1 tbsp (15 mL) cold water; whisk into marinade. Simmer until thickened and glossy, about 1 minute. Keep warm.

Transfer pork to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 10 minutes before slicing across the grain. Sprinkle with onion and coriander. Serve with sauce.
