Margarita Pork Tenderloin

Submitted by: SAMVICARS

Introduction

When the tenderloin has come off the fire and is resting, take the few extra minutes to grill off some cut lemon and lime halves. Serve these on the platter next to the sliced pork and let your guests squeeze one or two onto the pork to help brighten up the flavor.

    11/2 pounds pork tenderloin
    1/2 cup bottled red wine vinaigrette
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
    1/4 cup tequila

    1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
    3 limes, cut in half
