Instructions

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

For the sauce, purée scallions, cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice, and oil in a food processor; season with salt.

For the pork, grill tenderloin on all sides until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 145°, 1012 minutes. Transfer tenderloin to a plate, tent with foil, and let rest 510 minutes. Serve tenderloin with sauce and top with Cotija.

Since the sauce is puréed, you can use the cilantro leaves as well as the stems. They have tons of flavor.

If you’re sensitive to spicy foods, be sure to remove the ribs and seeds from the jalapeño.
