The entire name is actually "Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Guava Glaze and Orange Habanero Mojo. But don't let the long name intimidate you. Really quite easy with a beautiful presentation. One of Bobby Flay's recipes.

How to Make Grilled Pork Tenderloin w/ Guava Glaze


  1. Prepare the Guava Glaze by whisking jelly, dijon, and 1/4 cup orange juice in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Make the Orange-Habanero Mojo. Heat 2 Tbsp. canola in a saucepan. Add onion and garlic and cook til soft. Add lime juice, 3 cups orange juice, and habanero chile and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by half. Whisk in cilantro and cumin (if desired) and season to taste with salt and pepper
  3. Preheat a grill. Brush pork with oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside a few tablespoons of the guava glaze to baste the pork while cooking. Grill 4-5 minutes per side, brushing frequently with glaze. Remove from grill and brush again with remaining glaze. Let rest for 10 minutes. Slice and drizzle orange-habanero mojo over the pork. Serve remaining mojo on the side.
