ARCHIVE: Grilled Ginger Pork with Nectarine Relish

Serves 4 / Serving tip: The pork may be grilled ahead of time and served at room temperature, but slice just before serving to retain juices.

4 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

3 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon minced garlic

4 tablespoons pineapple juice

1 teaspoon rice vinegar

1 pound pork tenderloin, all fat removed

1 large nectarine, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

1 teaspoon minced jalapeño

2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallion (white part only)

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

1. Mix together tamari, oil, ginger, garlic, pineapple juice, and vinegar. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the mixture. Marinate pork in remaining mixture for 15 minutes; then turn pork and marinate 15 minutes more.

2. Preheat grill. Stir together nectarine, jalapeño, cilantro, scallion, and lime juice. Set aside.

3. Grill pork over medium-high heat, turning occasionally and basting with residual marinade (not the reserved 2 tablespoons), until center of pork reaches 150°, 20–30 minutes. Let pork rest 10 minutes; then cut into 1/2-inch slices. Drizzle with reserved 2 tablespoons marinade. Serve, topped with nectarine relish.
