Caribbean Pork Tenderloins
(Makes 4 servings)

Combine onion, ginger, garlic, chiles, coconut milk, rum, lime juice and brown sugar in bowl, and whisk to combine. Place tenderloins in gallon size resealable plastic bag, and add marinade. Remove as much air as possible before sealing bag, and turn bag to make sure the tenderloins are well coated. Refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, for 6 hours.

Preheat grill to medium-low.

Remove tenderloins from marinade (discard marinade), and blot dry with paper towels. Brush tenderloins with vegetable oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill and cook, rotating as necessary, until thermometer inserted into the center of tenderloins reads 140 to 145 F, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
