  • 1-2 lb pork tenderloin

For The Marinade

  • juice of one lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2-3 chipotle peppers coarsely chopped
  • 3 tsp adobo sauce from the can of chipotle peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For The Fresh Cherry Salsa

  • 1 cup sweet dark cherries, pitted and sliced into quarters
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tsp lemon juice


  • Combine marinade ingredients. Pour half of marinade into a resealable bag with pork tenderloin; cover and store the other half of the marinade in the refrigerator until you’re ready to grill the pork. Marinate the pork for at least an hour.
  • Pre-heat your grill to medium-high. Discard the used marinade and cook the pork over indirect heat, towards the edge of the grill, for roughly 15-20 minutes per side, or until cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F.
  • Place cooked pork tenderloin on a sheet of aluminum foil, bringing the edges up around it to form a ‘basket’. Pour the remaining marinade over the pork, and seal the aluminum foil, allowing everything to rest for about 10 minutes.
  • To Make The Salsa:
  • Combine all of the ingredients and serve over the pork.
