OMGoodness!! THE BEST piece of meat I've ever eaten! It was so tender, moist and SO flavorful. I made this for New Year's and sent leftovers home with my parents. My dad texted the next day, "Best pork ever" (and he's picky...) I, too, could not find the tamarind in a local grocery store with a pretty broad selection of ethnic foods. So, b/c I was in a rush, I used "Kikkoman Ponzu citrus seasoning and dressing & sauce- LIME". I thought b/c there was lime and oranges in the recipe that it would be too citrusy, but it wasn't. This was delicious!!! I definitely recommend! (We also grilled ours)

Hey Karen! Ground tamarind concentrate/tamarind paste is made from grinding the fruit of the tamarind tree which is found in tropical areas...primarily Africa. It has a sweet and sour kind of flavor. In a moment of desperation, you could substitute Worcestershire sauce...desperation. smile

I was reading your recipe for grilled pork tenderloin. What is tamarind conentrate, ground? Thank you for answering me in advance. Karen worner

i made this for fathers day...i forgot to read the part the leftover marinade, i just slopped some on after i cut it and it was a major hit. It tastes better the next day after the cooked meat has been sitting with some marinade though. i would consider it better as a leftover than fresh! there are substitutes for tamarind. i could only find tamarind paste (which is concentrated, i figured this out when i read the directions on the jar that you have to add water...) and i found it at AJ's fine foods. try indian markets or thai markets. not in mexican markets! there is paste, powder, concentrated powder and dipping sauce.

I have not tried this recipe yet. This rating is for info only: I don't think that their is a substitute for tamarind. it has a unique flavor. Tamarind concentrate is available at all Oriental Stores. It is used throughout Asia as a flavoring for various dishes; most notably Filipino Sinigang na Baboy (Sour Soup Pork) Soup. This soup is absolutely the best soup I have ever eaten. Buy an extra package and Google the recipe. You will not be disappointed. Good Luck...DGQ
