We had a BBQ party today and served pork loin with two different types of marinade. This one was universally loved. It has a wonderful sweet and salty flavor. The kids definitely preferred this one, though the adults were more evenly split. Easy to make and perfect for a large BBQ party! The picture didn't turn out very well, but this was a beautiful dish.

    I was lucky enough to be there, and the pork was a hit. I was hoping for leftovers, but no luck. Oh well, at least I had 3 pieces (ok maybe 4). Thanks John for the fabulous dish.

    I made this tonight, and it was fabulous! My 9-year-old said it was the best thing he had ever tasted. My 11-year-old, who is a picky eater, also liked it, and gave it a good review. I will be making this again. Thanks, John!

      great marinade, but don't overcook this cut of meat. pull it off the grill when the internal temp reaches 145 degrees, let stand for 10 minutes, and you'll have an absolutely delicious tenderloin. P.S. it's OK if it's a little pink.

          Nope, not 160 degrees - 150 is more than adequate.

            Thanks for the suggestion, Stephen. I agree that 150 works fine.
