"This is my favorite summer marinade for pork tenderloin. Use any of your favorite fruit sodas - black cherry, grape, raspberry, etc. Also great served cold on a green salad." — Kris Schultz

Excellent! The best and easiest pork tenderloin recipe I have ever found! I have also used the marinade for chicken breasts --They are great. I usually marinade them the night before and they turn out great! I cook the pork tenderloins to about 150 degrees and then wrap them in foil for 20 to 30 minutes and they turn out perfectly.
Marinade wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be. Not a bad recipe however I probably won't make again
Loved it....but made a few changes the second time. I find cola works better than fruit-flavored sodas. Fruity ones impart TOO much of THEIR flavor. I also cut the brown sugar in half. The soda makes it sweet enough. 20 minutes on the grill and your ready to eat! Delicious!!
We used Coke instead of a fruit soda. We had no problem finding the plum jam; it right there in the supermarket with all the other jellies and jams. This was great! We made it for Christmas Eve and had plenty of leftovers for sandwiches. We were sorry to run out!!!
My husband loved it; I thought it was okay. But I baked it instead of grilling it (350 for 45 minutes) Definitely need a meat thermoter for this one...or cook it less than 45 minutes. It is very juicy and tender. I served it with the mushroom rice from this site with steamed brocolli and the meal was very good. Well, anytime my husband says: "can you make this again?" means it is REALLY good.
This is a great summertime BBQ recipe because you can do most of it ahead of time. I used Dr. Brown's Black Cherry Soda for the marinade and did it the day before. The glaze gets nice and crispy on the outside and the pork is so tender and flavorful, everyone loved it. It goes well with a variety of salads--especially a spinach and strawberry salad. It is one of my favorites.
I thought this was good, not great. No one else in my family cared for it. It tasted exactly like blackcherry soda. I marinated overnight. we couldn't taste anyother flavors. My husband piled on the salt and pepper, and said "pork shouldn't be sweet." Then I made a suggestion of using regular cola, but everyone told me not to make this anymore. Although I will not make this again I will give this four stars because, I thought it was o.k, and because there was not a piece left on the platter. Everyone ate theirs, therefor it was not disgusting. and it was very tender. I baked at 425 for 30 minutes (put on foil, sure made a mess on my jelly roll pan) I would suggest only marinating for a few hours, maybe two.
Wonderful! I made this for my mother-in-law's birthday and my husband was grilling tenderloin for the first time. Everyone loved the moist flavor. I used plum preserves instead of the jam. We didn't even have any leftovers. Definetly a new family favorite. Thank You!
