The 4th of July holiday is just around the corner and many of us will be attending a barbecue party or hosting one to celebrate our nation's Independence Day. Along with all of our party celebrations comes great tasting food and lots of family fun!
The following recipe would be perfect for all of your July 4th celebrations. It is courtesy of the great folks over at Sparkling ICE.
2 Bottles Sparkling ICE Cherry Limeade
1/3 Cup Soy Sauce
5 Garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger, minced
1 Tablespoon whole black peppercorns
1 Teaspoon red pepper flake
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 lbs. Pork Tenderloin
Salt and Pepper
1/2 cup Scallion, sliced thinly
To prepare the marinade, whisk together Sparkling Ice Cherry Limeade, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, whole peppercorns, red pepper flake and olive oil in a large bowl. Place pork tenderloin in a large zip lock bag or shallow baking dish. Pour marinade over pork, cover or seal. Refrigerate for 6 hours.
Remove pork from marinade and pat dry. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Reserve the liquid.
Place marinade in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Preheat your grill (medium high heat). Place pork on pre-heated grill and close the cover. Turn and brush the pork with the simmered marinade every 5 minutes. Cook until meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork registers 145°F, about 15-20 minutes. Rest for 10 minutes, slice and serve with scallions and warm marinade liquid.
