1.) Combine the garlic, jalapeno, and vinegar in a small bowl. Stir in the parsley, oregano and lime juice. Whisk in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside at room temperature so that the flavours can marry. This is the chimichurri sauce.

2.) Reserve 1/2 cup of the chimichurri to serve and marinate the pork in the rest. Put the pork in the marinade and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

3.) Preheat an outdoor grill or an oven broiler to high.

4.) Remove the pork from the marinade, wiping off excess. Season both sides of both tenderloins generously with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and place on the grill. Grill the pork on the hottest side of the barbecue for 4 minutes per side until well charred. Allow the tenderloin to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into thin rounds. While resting, drizzle with lime juice and serve at the table with remaining chimichurri sauce.

5.) Serve and enjoy!
