Lean, tasty and waste-free, pork tenderloin is the perfect summer grilling meat. Of the dozen or so ways I grill it, this version, in which the meat is coated with a spicy rub and served with a pretty fruit salsa, may be my favorite. Nectarines or red plums, like Santa Rosas, can be substituted for the peaches.
For the Salsa:
3 ripe peaches, pitted, diced (about 4 cups)
1 medium tomato, seeded, diced
3 green onions, white and pale green parts, thinly sliced
1 medium fresh jalapeno chile, stemmed, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3/4 teaspoon sugar
For the Pork:
2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 pork tenderloins (about 2 1/4 pounds total)
FOR THE SALSA: Gently mix all ingredients in medium bowl. Season to taste with salt. Let stand at room temperature, stirring once or twice, while preparing pork.

FOR THE PORK: Light a charcoal fire and let it burn down to medium-high or preheat a gas grill to medium-high. Position the rack about 6 inches above heat source. Stir chipotle powder, brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in small bowl. Sprinkle chipotle mixture on all sides of pork tenderloins, patting firmly to adhere.

When the grill is ready, lightly oil grilling rack. Lay tenderloins on rack. Cover and grill 5 minutes, rearranging pork on rack to create attractive markings. Turn and grill another 5 minutes, again rearranging tenderloins to create a crosshatch pattern. Continue to grill pork, turning it twice more, about 16 minutes total for medium doneness. Transfer pork to cutting board; let rest for 5 minutes.

TO SERVE: Stir cilantro into salsa and adjust the seasoning. Cut pork across the grain and at slight angle into thin slices. Arrange slices on plates. Spoon salsa generously atop pork slices and serve immediately.

Great flavor!!
This recipe was really good. I was a little thrown off by the adding of the cilantro to the salsa at the end because it wasn't in the ingredient list. I added about 2 Tablespoons. I will definitely make this again. It is a keeper!!
