  • 2 Ontario pork tenderloins, about 1-1/2 lb (750 g)
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) grated lemon zest 
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) fresh lemon juice 
  • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard 
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) freshly ground black pepper

Tomato Relish:

  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) seeded and diced fresh tomatoes

  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Remove the silverskin from the pork tenderloin. Trim any visible fat and pat dry; set aside.

  3. Fresh Tomato Relish: In a bowl, stir together tomatoes, basil, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. 
  4. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill pork tenderloins all over until grill-marked. Reduce grill to medium and grill for 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally until internal temperature registers 155ºF (68ºC). Remove to cutting board and tent with foil. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing. 
  5. Place slices on serving platter and sprinkle with salt to taste. Spoon Fresh Tomato Relish over top pork slices to serve.
