Pork tenderloin is a fabulous cut of meat. It's easy to flavor and cooks in a relatively short amount of time. Like chicken, it can be seasoned with just about anything. In this recipe, the pork is coated with a fragrant Jamaican style-mixture. Garlic, lime juice, fresh thyme, ginger, and ground spices are combined to make the rub that is massaged into the meat. This dish would be wonderful at an informal dinner party. Serve with plantains or rice for a Caribbean style feast.
