SAUCE:
  • Combine garlic, jalapeño, and vinegar in medium bowl.
  • Whisk in parsley, oregano, lime juice, and orange juice.
  • Whisk in olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix well and set aside at room temperature to allow the flavors to blend.

PORK:
  • Place the pork tenderloin in a resealable plastic bag and add the chimichurri sauce; however, reserve 1/2 to 1 cup of the sauce to serve on the side. Marinate the pork in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat grill to medium heat.
  • Remove pork from marinade and place directly on the grill. Discard the marinade. Season the tenderloin with salt and pepper. Grill 6-8 minutes until nicely browned. Turn and season again with salt and pepper. Grill another 5 minutes or until done.
  • Remove the pork from the grill, cover with foil, and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Slice the tenderloin into half-inch thick slices, place on serving platter, and drizzle with some of the reserved sauce.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley if desired and serve with reserved chimichurri sauce on the side.
