Nutritional values

The fillet is one of the leanest and lowest-calorie cuts of pork. This dish also provides valuable protein and nutrients. One serving of this dish provides your daily requirement of vitamin B1 and half of your daily requirement of B2, niacin, iron, and zinc. These vitamins and minerals help strengthen the nervous and immune systems.

Consider removing excess marinade off the pork before grilling. If too much seasoning sauce drips onto the embers, the smoke can contain substances that are harmful to your health.
