Author: Canadian Living

This yogurt-based marinade is more for flavour than for tenderizing. You could also use a boneless pork shoulder blade roast or boneless pork loin centre roast.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb large pork tenderloin
  • 1 lemon
Lemon Ginger Marinade:
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon grated gingerroot
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

Lemon Ginger Marinade: In large bowl, whisk together yogurt, ginger, lemon rind and juice, oil, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper.

Cut pork into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes; add to bowl and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Cut lemon into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices; cut each into quarters. Alternately thread pork and lemon quarters onto 4 metal or soaked wooden skewers.

Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; brush with any remaining marinade. Close lid and grill, turning 4 times, until golden brown and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 12 minutes.
