An amazing restaurant in Tampa that I like to dine at is the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City. The food is delicious each time I visit, and I love Cuban food. They make a salad called a 1905 salad that is delightful, and if you ever get a chance to visit you definitely should. To get a little taste of one of my favorite recipes I decided to make 1905 Inspired Pork Tenderloin for an easy weeknight meal!
Let’s make the marinade!
To start you’ll need to prepare the marinade by combining the lime juice, orange juice, olive oil, white wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, Cholula Hot Sauce (you can substitute your favorite hot sauce if you can’t find this one), minced garlic, hot red pepper flakes, pepper, oregano, seasoned salt, and jalapeno. Marinade the pork tenderloin in a shallow dish or plastic gallon bag for a minimum of 4 to overnight. I marinated this overnight with the intent of cooking this after work the next day. I used the small pork tenderloins for this recipe not the larger pork loin cut.
Prepare one recipe of my Fresh Mango Peach Salsa which can made the day of cooking or prepared in advance.
To cook in the Instant Pot add your rack that came with it to the pot, and add the pork tenderloin without the marinade with the chicken broth and the juice of 1/2 a naval orange. Cook on High Pressure for 7 minutes with an 8 minute natural pressure release.
To cook in the oven to 425 degrees and roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Rest for a few minutes prior to serving.
To grill cook for about 15 minutes or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 155-degrees then remove, cover with foil, and allow to rest for 10 minutes prior to serving which will allow the pork to continue cooking for the last 5 degrees of temperature.
