Grilled Marinated Ginger, Lime and Garlic Pork Tenderloin

This recipe is everything it's name says it is. I should put in extremely miost and tasty as the title as well! Using only a few key ingredients this is a really tasty, zingy... and not too spicey meal. My kids and husband both loved it. Try it yourself and let me know what you think.


1 plain pork tenderloin roast, trim off any excess fat or rhind
5 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp freshly chopped garlic
1 heaped Tbsp finely chopped ginger
juice of 2 limes
peel of lime chopped finely
3 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp chilli paste


in a bowl mix all ingredients except pork and whisk together until all the sauces are well blended and incorporated together.
Slice pork roast ultra thin, then cut down into bite size strips.
In a zip lock bag put your sauce in first getting all the yummy little lime ginger and garlic pieces in. Then add your pork strips. Before sealing squish it around to get the sauce all through the pieces. Then seal and refridgerate for 4-5 hours.

Before cooking is a good time to start steaming your rice as it cooks in approx. 5 minutes.

To cook heat up 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a pan or lightly grease your BBQ, heat up to Medium high.
(If BBQ-ing leave strips long so they don't fall through grates on the grill)
Once oil (grill) is heated add pork in single layers to the heated cooking area ..., allow it to sear the sides well. With the remaining juices in the bag, place in a small sauce pan on medium high and simmer and reduce the marinade while the pork cooks.
When meat is done all the way through (it cooks EXTREMELY fast) remove it from the heat. Let it rest a minute and it will get very happy in your pan/plate!.
Serve over steamed rice and pour reduced marinade over the top.
