Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Green Mango

Okay, I have a confession to make. I didn't make this recipe. Instead, I ate it. I went over to my parent's house to have some pork tenderloin with mango. I didn't know I was having a pork tenderloin lettuce wraps of sorts. But, it was so good and so pretty that I had just had to post this recipe that my Mom made. She told me that she followed the recipe exactly, but used the Dry Sherry instead of Sake. As she had sherry on hand. She was pretty sure she grilled the pork longer than the 22 minutes, but used a thermometer to get the exact temperature. My Dad cheated and added Baslamic Dressing to his wrap. Shh. Don't tell Mom. Enjoy!
