  1. To make the marinade, place chipotle, adobo sauce, chopped garlic, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon and pineapple juice in a
    food processor.
  2. Next, clean pork tenderloins (remove/peel silver skin). Place in 1/2 pan and cover with marinade and rub, working the marinade into the loins. Place in refrigerator covered. Let stand for 2-3 hours, do NOT marinate over night.
  3. Then, slice onions 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick and grill till tender. Hold warm, rough cut when plating. Place sweet potato fingerlings on 1/2 sheet tray along with pineapple chunks. Sprinkle with kosher salt roast in convection oven 350° F for 20–25 mins. Remove pork tenderloin from refrigerator and let stand room temp for 15-20 mins. Shake off excess marinade and place on hot chargrill.
  4. Grill until internal temp reaches 145° F (rotating as needed). Pull from grill and let rest 2–3 mins to allow for carryover cooking and juices to set.
  5. Finally, slice pork 1/4 inch thick on bias and serve topped with grilled onions and cilantro. Serve with roasted sweet potato fingerlings and pineapple on side.
