Sunday Dinner: Grilled Pork Tenderloins with Jamaican Spices

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.

My printer broke so I can't print this just yet - very sad. We're having dogs from Pink's (well from my kitchen) - I watched Throwdown last night and they have some great dogs. I'm making the one wrapped in tortillas. sonnabobble, I'd love to read the hubby blog. Hubby and I eat burgers once a week and am always up for a new twist. My lastest was topped with carmelized onions, Fuji apples and bleu cheese - super delish to us. Please post link.
