How to make it

  • 1) Puree the apricot spread, minced chipotles, tequila, and olive oil in a bowl with a hand blender or in a food processor. Use 2 chipotles first and see if you want it hotter before adding more. Also, test for sweetness.
  • 2) Coat both sides of the meat in the sauce and marinate, covered for 2 hours.
  • 3) Prepare the grill for indirect cooking. Add wood chips or chunks when the coals are ready.
  • 4) Remove pork from marinade. Reserve marinade and put in a small pan. Boil for one minute.
  • 5) Grill the tenderloins 20-22 minutes, turning frequently and basting with boiled marinade. Watch them carefully as they can scorch easily.
  • To serve, cut the pork in thin slices across the grain. Pour any unused boiled marinade over and serve with rice.

    Oh, la, la, this is some spicy little number!! Or should I say Ah-chee-momma!! Love the anejo addition, it should mellow those chipotle with the sweet quite nicely. Bravo!

    I love to find new ways to cook Pork Loin. This looks like a great one. The spicy sweet flavors will complement each other well. I have bookmarked this one.
