Jerked Pork Tenderloin with Orange-Red Onion Salsa

2 pork tenderloins, 10 to 12 ounces each
Marinade:
4 green onions, chopped fine
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 serrano chiles, chopped fine
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons jerk seasoning
2 teaspoon cider vinegar
¼ cup vegetable oil

To make marinade:
Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Salsa:
1 orange, peeled, seeds removed, divided into sections and cut into smaller pieces
1 red onion, diced small
1 teaspoon minced garlic
5 Tablespoons lime juice (about 3 limes)
1 teaspoon minced free red or green chile pepper of your choice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

To make salsa:
Combine all the salsa ingredients, mix well and set aside. (This mixture will keep, covered and refrigerated, for 3 or 4 days.)

Place whole pork tenderloins in zip-lock bag with marinade and massage well. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

With the heat deflector in place over the coals, bring the temperature of your Hasty-Bake to 225 to 250°F. Cook the tenderloins until the internal temperature reaches 160°F (approximately 1 hour). Remove and let rest for 10 minutes before serving. To serve, slice into ¼” medallions and top with salsa.
