First , let me apologize to you guys for the picture. I am really trying to take better pics, and last night I had the whole pork tenderloin all pretty and on a platter, ready to take pics. then life happened. My 6 year old decided he wanted an ice cream sandwich for dinner, and when he realized that was not happening , he had a meltdown on the kitchen floor of epic proportions. Then started the chain reaction of an 8 year old whining to go to the neighbors to play, my teenagers fighting over who's turn it was to load the dishwasher, and my husband, added to the mix by deciding to let everyone know, at the top of his lungs mind you, hat he knew every stinking word to Lady Antebellum's "Just a Kiss". So, the pork was cut, thrown on plates and into whiny, yelling and singing mouths. But I did grab a pic of my plate before I ate.
This was a very easy marinade to put together and I let it marinate for about 7 hours in a large ziploc bag in the refrigerator. It cooked evenly and in about 30 minutes on our gas grill. The flavor was really good. The molasses and the mustard/vinegar combo was perfect. I will be adding this to my pork rotation. I served this with baked rice and green beans.
