    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)
  • 1 fresh pineapple, cut into 12 slices

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Pour 2/3 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the pork; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • Drain and discard marinade. Lightly grease the grill rack.
  • Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Place pork over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 25-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Meanwhile, grill pineapple slices for 2-3 minutes on each side or until heated through; serve with pork.
