Lime cilantro pork

2 pork small tenderloins
1/4 cup lime juice (fresh is best)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/8 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup cilantro chopped
2-3 tbsp sugar
1 pinch crushed red pepper flake
5 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 cup white or yellow onion chopped
Salt and pepper
1/8 cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 360. Combine all ingredients (reserve salt) in food storage bag and marinate for about 20 minutes. Remove pork from bag and place on baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and bake for 40 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle. In small saucepan boil marinade for five minutes and then reduce heat to medium low and allow it to reduce until thickened. At this point you will want to check your marinade for tartness. You may need a little more sugar or a little more lime depending on your taste. Allow pork to rest for about 5 minutes and then carve. Top with sauce and serve.

Sorry I totally forgot to take a picture of it plated, but you get the idea.
