Cuban Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Cuban grilled pork is a perfect weeknight grilling meat. Make the marinade in the morning, toss it in the fridge while you are at work, and it’s ready to grill when you get home! The marinade is a combination of citrus and zesty spices. Goes well with most side salads, pasta salads, and beans and rice.
