Ginger mojito pork

We've transformed the signature ingredients of our favourite summer drink - limes, rum and fresh mint - into a super-easy pork marinade.


  • 4 limes

  • 2 tbsp honey

  • 4 tsp rum

  • 1 tbsp oil

  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

  • 1 pork tenderloin, or 1 small boneless centre-cut pork-loin roast, about 1 1/4 lb

  • 1/4 cup shredded fresh mint


  • Oil grill and heat barbecue to medium. Meanwhile, squeeze 1/3 cup (75 mL) juice from limes into a wide shallow bowl or pie plate. Whisk in honey, rum, oil, ginger and a generous sprinkle of salt. Using the tip of a small knife, make shallow slashes all over the pork. Place in lime mixture and turn to evenly coat. Leave while the barbecue preheats, at least 10 min. Turn occasionally.

  • When grill is hot, add meat. Cook with lid closed, basting often with lime mixture for the first 10 min. Turn occasionally until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of pork reads 155F (70C), from 15 to 20 more min. Remove to a cutting board. Let rest 5 min, then slice. Sprinkle with mint.
