  • 6 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves, divided
  • cup fresh cilantro leaves, divided
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 (1lb)  pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt, divided
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • cooking spray (we like to use canola oil spray)
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 shallot, chopped


  • Combine 2 tbsp oil, 1/4 cup parsley, 1/3 cup cilantro, cumin, and crushed red pepper in a shallow dish. Add pork. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to marinate in the fridge for 1 hour, turning once.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Sprinkle the pork with 1/2 tsp salt and black pepper. Cook pork on cooking spray-coated  grill for about 8 minutes. Turn over and cook for an additional 7 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145˚F. Remove from heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Slice pork crosswise.
  • Place remaining 3/4 cup parsley, 1/3 cup cilantro, 1/4 tsp salt, oregano, and remaining ingredients in a food processor. Pulse 10 times. While the food processor is on, drizzle the remaining olive oil through the food processor’s chute. Serve Chimichurri with the pork.
