  1. Start by creating the incredible Chimichurri Sauce:
  2. In a food processor, combine shallots, red wine vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, and cumin. Give it a few pulses to blend and chop the ingredients, ensuring the shallots are about ¼ inch pieces.
  3. Add the cilantro and spinach to the processor and blend until the cilantro is chopped into roughly ¼ inch pieces. Set this vibrant sauce aside.
  4. Now, let's prepare the star of the show, the pork tenderloin:
  5. Trim the pork tenderloin and marinate it in two tablespoons of the chimichurri sauce for a glorious 30 minutes.
  6. While the flavors meld together, heat up your grill to medium-high heat.
  7. Grill the marinated pork for about 5-8 minutes on each side or until it reaches an internal temperature of 150°F. You'll know it's ready when the aroma is irresistible!
  8. Remove the pork from the grill and let it rest off the fire for about 10 minutes. This step ensures that all the juicy goodness stays locked in.
  9. Slice your perfectly grilled pork tenderloin and serve it with a generous drizzle of the tantalizing chimichurri sauce on top.
