Marinated roasted garlic and black pepper pork tenderloin is grilled to perfection and served with a tangy pineapple cilantro mayonnaise for an easy and quick summertime meal!
Course: Main Course
Servings: 4 -6
Ingredients
  • 1 red onion , cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Tenderloin (about 1.25 pounds), cut into 1-inch cubes
For the sauce
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 can (8 ounce) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 3 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
Directions
  1. Place red onion in a small bowl; toss with the olive oil, cilantro, and a few grinds of salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Skewer the marinated pork and onion onto metal skewers. Grill kabobs over medium-high direct heat for a total of 10 minutes, about 2-3 minutes on each side, until pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
  3. In the meantime make the dipping sauce: in a medium bowl, combine the mayo, pineapple, lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning, if desired.
  4. Divide skewers onto individual plates. Serve with the flavored mayo and some jasmine rice, if desired.
Recipe Notes

If you don’t like the onion charred, grill them separately from the pork for about 5 minutes total.
