Grilled Adobo Pork Tenderloin Salad With Plums and Almonds
Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are the base of the marinade for this smoky pork tenderloin. The pork is grilled to perfection, and sliced into thin strips. Serve on a bed of baby greens or shredded Napa cabbage.
FOR GAS GRILL
At least 10 minutes before cooking, turn all burners on high. Clean rack with a wire brush, then use tongs to wipe paper towels soaked in vegetable oil over it. Place meat on rack. Cover; cook without turning until well seared, about 7 minutes. Add plums, cut side down, and turn meat; continue to grill, covered, until other side of pork is seared, about 6 minutes. Turn off grill and let pork and plums continue to cook, covered, for 5 minutes, or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest end of meat registers 145 to 150 degrees.
