  • 1 lb. pork tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 limes zested and juiced
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar


  1. In a resealable bag, combine olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, and all of the spices. Use your fingers to knead the bag making sure it is all combined. Add pork and seal bag. Again use your fingers to knead the bag and turn the pork making sure it is completely covered with the marinade. Refrigerate for about 1-2 hours to let the marinade soak in.
  2. When ready to cook, preheat grill. Grill the pork for about 20-25 minutes until it is cooked through (145 degrees F). Let stand for 3-5 minutes before slicing it.
