Chili lemon pork & grilled corn and tomato salad
I normally NEVER eat pork because I find it dry and just not good. Then Jason spied some boneless pork on sale for four dollars. I argued with him not to buy it but then spotted a recipe posted beside it for Chili Lemon pork & grilled corn salad. It sounded pretty yummy so we went with it!
What you need:
The recipe calls for pork tenderloin so I’m not sure if this is what we bought but we had four pieces so I just doubled the sauce.
2 (or 4) Tbsp of Compliments Cilantro Chili Lemon Grilling sauce
1 container cherry grape tomatoes (I don’t like those so I hulled some hothouse tomatoes and chopped them finely)
5 ears of corn (I used 4 and also left it in the husk, not realizing the recipe said to husk it - oops)
1 pkg shredded carrots (I did my own)
1 lime juiced
2 Tbsp honey
S & P
1/2 red onion sliced very thinly
1 pkg fresh chives chopped (I used green onion- ARE THEY THE SAME THING? I’m so confused. )
Heat your Barbie to high. Pat dry the pork ( haha really?) and place on grill.
Note: it will stick so maybe Pam it first.
Place corn directly on grill. If you forgot to husk it, then it will catch on fire. Don’t be alarmed.
Cook both for 10 min, turning often. Remove corn and let it cool.
Brush pork with the sauce. Cook until the internal temp is 160 or until your man friend tells you it’s cooked. Aka until he cuts into it and declares “IT IS DONE”.
Remove from grill and cover with foil and let it sit while you hack the corn off the cob and into a bowl with all your salad ingredients.
I mixed my honey and lime juice in a bowl first so that the honey dissolved and then poured it over my salad.
This was seriously so good! Next time I would probably do some taters and obviously husk the corn. Sigh.
