Pork Tenderloin with Lime-Beer Marinade

Author: Canadian Living

The marinade of lime juice, beer and herbs gives this pork a smoky taste. It also makes a dandy sauce, but to be safe to eat it can't have touched the raw meat. Reserve 1/3 cup (75 mL) before combining the remainder with the pork; bring to a boil to mellow the flavours. Serve with corn on the cob and boiled new potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 1/2 cup nonalcoholic_beer
  • 1/3 cup lime juice

In large bowl, whisk together beer, lime juice, garlic, parsley, chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Add pork; turn to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours.
