Grilled Thai Pineapple Pork with a Balsamic Glaze

Why is this a Foodgasm?  Ohhhh sooo many reasons.  First since this pork is marinated in fresh pineapple, Thai green curry paste and lime juice the flavors marry the meat.  It is sweet, a little spicy, savory and ohhhh so juicy!  Top it off with a Balsamic glaze and you got some over the top sweet, sour and spicy action making your taste buds dance like it's 1999.

This is a 3 point foodgasm! (Recipe yields 2 servings)

What you need:
2 pieces pork tenderloin (5oz. each uncooked)
4 slices fresh pineapple
4 tbsp lime juice
2 tsp green curry paste
Balsamic Glaze (instructions on tomorrow's post)
Salt and Pepper to taste

How to make it:
Add the lime juice, green curry paste, salt and pepper in a zip lock bag and massage the bag to combine ingredients.  Place in the pork tenderloin and pineapple slices and let in marinate in the fridge for a couple hours.  Grill the pineapple slices and the pork got about 7-10 mins on each side and drizzle with Balsamic Glaze. I served with Lemon Rosemary roasted potatoes.

Enjoy your Foodgasm alone or with friends ;)
