There is a restaurant here in Dallas (Gloria's) that serves a great adobo sauce with pork tenderloin. Although I love pork, I always ordered grilled flank steak with it. Yum! This recipe is the culmination of several attempts to approximate their recipe, and I am very happy with the results. This sauce is fairly mild, but you can bring on the heat.
