Grilled Spiced Pork with Coconut Tomato Salad-Perfect for Father's Day

 

Grilled Pork served with Coconut Chile Tomato Salad,

 

adapted from an original recipe by Tyler Florence!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Tenderloin:

  • 2 pork tenderloins, 1 1/2 to 2-pounds total
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lime, juiced

Chile-Coconut Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, white part only, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 fresh red jalapeno, cut into rounds
  • 1 (14-ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Stems from a bunch of fresh cilantro

Chile-Coconut Tomato Salad, recipe follows 

Directions

Put the pork on a platter and sprinkle all over with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil and lime juice and turn to coat the pork. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in the refrigerator while you make the sauce.

For the Chile-Coconut Sauce:

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the ginger, garlic, lemongrass and chile and cook to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the coconut milk, and sugar and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the lime juice and season with fish sauce, and salt and pepper. Cool to room temperature. Add cilantro stems and puree using blender.

Preheat an outdoor gas or charcoal grill. Put the pork on the grill and cook, turning to brown all sides, until crusty on the outside and almost cooked through but still pink in the center, 10 to 15 minutes.  I HATE overcooked pork!!!!

Remove from the grill and let rest for a few minutes.

Chile-Coconut Tomato Salad:

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 2 pounds fresh heirloom tomatoes, cut into big chunks (variety of colors purple, yellow, bright red)
  • 1/2 small red onion, slivered
  • 1 fresh red jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • Leaves from a bunch of fresh cilantro
  • Handful fresh mint leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 green onions, trimmed and chopped

 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 

Spread the coconut out in a thin layer on a baking sheet and bake, shaking every now and then for even cooking, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. 

In a big bowl, toss together the tomatoes, red onion, chile, cilantro, mint, and salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and fold in the toasted coconut and green onions.

To serve, slice the pork and add it to the bowl with the tomato salad. Pour over the chile-coconut sauce and toss it all together.

Hopefully, I can come back later and show you the finished results (or the empty plates!)
