Marinated Pork with Garlic, Lime and Beer
This is a quickie weeknight post about getting inspired and just taking action. I’m talking about reading my blog buddy Reena’s post at Coconut Riata about Coriander (Cilantro) Pesto and envisioning what would I pair with this fabulous flavor combination? My solution is a quick beer, garlic, and lime marinade for an “on sale” pork loin, grilled over charcoal and hardwood, then topped with her fabulous concoction! Thanks Reena! (the only change to your recipe is to substitute lime juice for lemon.)

Marinade is seriously simple: 1 12 ounce can beer (your choice, I used Stella Atrois because that was in the fridge), 3 cloves garlic minced, zest of 1 lime, juice of 2 limes, 2 tablespoons olive oil. Whisk together and pour over pork in large ziplock bag. Marinate at least one hour or longer. Grill to about 160 degrees, rest, slice and top with Reena’s Pesto. Yum!
