FOR THE TACOS, TOP:
For the pork, whisk together orange juice, oil, lime juice, garlic, oregano, salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes. Place tenderloins in a baking dish and pour marinade over top. Cover dish; chill tenderloins until ready to grill, up to 2 hours.
Prepare grill for two-zone grilling, heating one side to medium-high and the other side to medium-low.
Grill tenderloins, covered, over medium-high heat until a thermometer inserted into the centers registers 150°, 12–15 minutes. Remove tenderloins from grill, tent with foil, and let rest while preparing tortillas.
Slice tenderloins and arrange on tortillas; serve with Grilled Salsa Roja.
