Backyard BBQ Battle : Episode 3 - Pork Tenderloin

Here are the recipes from Episode 3 of Backyard BBQ Battle on Eastlink TV.....  Battle Pork Tenderloin.  Bill took the win over me on this one, but my recipes are still pretty tasty.  Try the Mango Slaw... it's a great addition to balance out a spicy plate.

Jerk Marinade

  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon ground allspice
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon stick
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 or 2 Scotch bonnet peppers (seeded)
  • 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Marinade pork 6-8 hours or overnigh in half the marinade.  Reserve the other half for jerk BBQ sauce.  Before grilling, dry off all of the marinade from the pork with a paper towel.  Grill over direct heat till pork reaches internal temperature of 135F.  Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.  Serve with mango salsa on the side. 

Mango slaw
  • 1 english cucumber diced
  • 1 red mango diced (2 if they are small)
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 tbs of brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp of fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup of pomegranate seeds
 Toss all ingredients together and refrigerate. 

Brussel Sprout and Bacon Skewer         
  • 12 Brussel sprouts cut in half
  • Sliced bacon
  • Bamboo skewers

Soak bamboo skewers for an hour.  Insert end of bacon onto skewer and then insert a Brussel sprout.  Wrap bacon around Brussel sprout and skewer it again and keep alternating creating a wave pattern.  Try to get as many Brussel sprouts per skewer as you can adding bacon as you need it.  Grill them on indirect heat until the bacon has gone crispy.
