1 1/4-1 1/2 lb pork loin cut into steaks about 1 1/4 in. thick
zest of 1 orange
juice of 2 oranges (~3/4 C, maybe a little more)
1 lrg chipotle
1 tsp of adobo sauce (that the chipotle is packaged in)
1 Tbsp chopped garlic
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
Combine all ingredients except pork.
Between two piece of plastic wrap very lightly pound meat to help tenderize it. Put in marinade. Marinate for 1-12 hours, the longer the better.
Shake off excess marinade and sprinkle a tiny bit more salt on pork. Place on hot grill. (If you are using charcoal, throw on a couple hunks of wood to give a nice smokey flavor) Grill 5-6 min per side.
While pork is grilling, pour excess marinade into a pot. Heat over medium/med-high until it starts to bubble. Reduce by half to form sauce.
Let pork rest for 3-4 minutes under a foil tent. Serve and spoon sauce over.
