1 (12 ounce) can
canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, sliced
2 (12 ounce)
This sounded amazing, and I wish it had been. It was a very good flavor for marinade, but for some reason, it was still tough and even a bit dry. I will watch more closely next time as we may have overcooked. The leftovers with tacos sound awesome!
Don't be confused by the other review, or the directions. Use 3 chipotle peppers, not 3 cans of chipotle peppers. I also recommend making this in a crock pot or dutch oven at lower temp. Low and slow helps to moisten and keep it tender!!
I tried this recipe and was disappointed. 3 cans of chipotles peppers were extremely hot( too hot to eat hot)! Unless you were to remove all seeds and that would have been an arduous task due to the sauce. I also questioned to myself the temp and time. 375 degrees for 90 minutes??? My pork tenderloins came out tough as tough can be . I was extremely disappointed. I would lower oven temp and time and change to 1 can of chipotle and 2 cans of mild chili's. Next time!!!
The directions are unclear. Do I cook the pork in the marinade or toss the liquid and roast in a roasing pan? I wish I had read this all the way through before.
I prepared the marinade per the recipe, and after tasting decided to add a couple eyeballed tablespoons each of honey mustard (to help emulsify the oil) and fresh cilantro. After marinating for about an hour, we grilled the tenderloins (indirect heat) rather than roasting. Heat from the chipotle was just right, but the flavor was only ok. I think the beer watered the marinade down too much. Will likely use this recipe again as a starting point for tweaking and experimenting.
All marinade with just the amount of spice to it. Would be hot for people who do not like or can't tolerate hot foods. Wendy
