  1. Put the pork between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Working from the center, pound the pork flat into a 14x6-inch rectangle. Remove the plastic wrap. Stir 1/2 cup of the salsa, the chorizo and croutons in a medium bowl. Spread the chorizo mixture lengthwise down the center of the pork. Fold the sides over the filling to form a 14-inch long roll. Tie the pork crosswise at 2-inch intervals with kitchen twine.
  2. Add the remaining salsa, orange juice, cilantro, brown sugar and mango to an electric blender or food processor container. Cover and blend the mixture until it's smooth and pour into a 10-inch skillet. Heat over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook and stir for 20 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  3. Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium. Grill the pork for 20 to 30 minutes or until cooked through but slightly pink*, turning the pork over halfway through cooking. Remove the pork from the grill and let stand 10 minutes. Thinly slice the pork and serve with the mango sauce.

This is a fabulous recipe! I have made it twice now and it gets better and better! The sauce makes enough so that you can serve it with rice or broad egg noodles and have enough. Very tasty! I cooked it once on the BBQ as recommended and the last time in the oven at 375 and it turned out just as well.

I thought the salsa was absolutely gross and I've had "Mango Salsa" before. However, everyone else who ate dinner that night thought it was a hit. Make what you will of it.

Really enjoyed this, and it turned out to be far easier to make than I expected. First, I'd just sharpened my knives, the key to an easy job of butterflying any piece of meat. I used fresh chorizo, so I browned the meat and drained it. The pork tender was stuffed, tied, and put in the fridge early in the day, as was the cooked sauce. I used peach salsa (which had a little kick) because it's what was in the fridge...perfect choice for this recipe. I think this sauce is spectacular and would be great served with chicken, shrimp, and so many other things that it makes my head spin. Side dishes were Blister Beans and Lime Cilantro Rice from the AR site, and they were prepared in advance as well. We went to the beach today, came home, heated up in the micro the beans, rice, and sauce, grilled the rolled pork tenderloin and had an incredible cuban-inspired dinner. Winner, winner IMO!

The sauce for this looks a little scary but it tastes excellent. I used hot salsa which gave it a great kick. I will definitely be making this again!

Cooked this for the first time tonight. It was great! It was easy to prepare. Next time I cook it I will reduce the amount of Pepperoni to 5 oz. The mango mojo made the dish! i'm going to use it as salsa tomorrow.

I would give this 10 stars if they had 'em. I opted for chopped pepperoni for stuffing (who knew pepperoni could be so upscale?) and it was fabulous. Just a wonderful blend of flavors, very easy, looks fancy -- you would be happy to get this in a restaurant. One of my very top favorite recipes from this site. Thanks!!!!

I absolutely loved this recipe. The stuffing inside the pork is just great. Simple and great. I was very unsure of the salsa with the mango and orange juice... but after reading the reviews... took a chance. Loved it. Everyone who tried it loved it. This is a simple recipe and is a keeper.

Perhaps my husband cooked it a little too long. I wasn't crazy about the flavor though.
