1 lb  Pork, tenderloin, lean, raw
1 tbsp  olive oil
1 tsp  ground cumin
1 pinch  salt and pepper
10 each  Tomatillo, fresh, medium
2 each  whole jalapeno pepper
1 each  large onion
3 tbsp  cold water
0 1/2 cup  fresh cilantro
  1. Butterfly pork tenderloin lengthwise. Flatten pork with the palm of your hand to achieve even thickness. Cover with oil and season with cumin, salt, and pepper.
  2. Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Grill tomatillos, jalapenos, and onion for about 5 to 10 minutes, turning often, until soft. Remove vegetables from grill. Seed and stem jalapenos. Add tomatoes, jalapenos, and half the onions to a blender or food processor; blend until mixture becomes a thick paste. Transfer to a serving dish and mix in water and cilantro, adding salt to taste.
  3. Place pork on the grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until internal temperature as measured with an instant-read thermometer is 160 degrees F. Slice pork and arrange on a warm serving tray.
  4. Spoon some of the tomatillo mixture over the pork and decorate with the remaining grilled onions. Garnish with cilantro. Serve pork with remaining sauce.
