Instructions
Marinade
  1. Add the orange juice, vinegar, ginger, and orange zest in a bowl. Whisk together thoroughly.
  2. Place the pork tenderloins in a baking dish and pour half the marinade over them. Turn, and pour the remaining half over them, using a spoon to distribute evenly if necessary.
  3. Refrigerate at least four to six hours.
Sauce
  1. Combine orange juice, ketchup, garlic, jalapeños, wine vinegar, and fennel seeds in a saucepan. Stir ingredients together.
  2. Bring to a boil - stir only once or twice.
  3. Simmer at a medium setting, stirring occasionally, for about a half an hour. After 30 minutes or so, the sauce should be thickened, and reduced to about half the volume. Season with salt to taste.
Grill
  1. Remove the meat from the marinade and start the grill.
  2. Sprinkle the pork loins with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill at a medium high flame until cooked nearly all the way through, or about 15 minutes, turning once or twice.
  4. Brush with the spicy orange sauce and continue to grill for another five minutes or so, turning at least once.
  5. Serve with any remaining barbecue sauce on the side as a dipping sauce.
Recipe Notes

Tips: You can marinate the pork loin overnight for an extra flavor boost. You can make the grilling sauce up to two days in advance. Store it, covered, in the fridge.
