apple cider vinegar
crushed red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
1 (1 1/2 pound)
This was good but I used less Molasses (just 1/2 cup) and 1/4 c. Apple Cider Vinegar. I also didn't use 1 c. as a baste. It might be good to marinate it longer than 30 minutes- maybe an hour would be better. The red pepper flakes made it a little too spicy in places. I will leave that out next time.
This recipe was pretty good. I would definitely suggest using less molasses and less apple cider vinegar. Probably a 1/2 cup of each, it makes a LOT of marinade. Also, try blotting the tenderloin before grilling, because the molasses has a tenancy to burn quickly. I also recommend leaving the pork a little pink in the middle, comes out much more tender and juicy.
Very nice flavor and easy to make. We made it in the oven using a meat thermometer to get it to 160 degrees and then tented it to let it sit for about 5 minutes. Perfectly cooked and great flavor. Thanks for sharing!
Im sorry but I did not like this at all. It caused a fight between my fiance and I...I thought that it was pretty funny how a Tenderloin could start an argument.
Made this for my parents this weekend and they absolutely loved it. I used some of the marinade for chicken yesterday and it was really good too.
This marinade does not smell so great, so I was worried, but thankfully this was good! I didn't have 2 cups of molasses - that's really a lot! So I used what I had left, which was 3/4 cup, along with 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar and only 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes because my 4 year old won't eat things too hot. I marinated for about 2 1/2 hours and reserved a 1/2 cup of marindade to baste with. I'd say you want to marinate as long as possible. Good flavor.
I have made this a few times. i use 1 cup of molasses and 1/2 cup cider vinegar. It is a nice recipe for the grill.
We really liked this...instead of grilling it I baked it on 375 for about 45 mins. in all of the sauce made (I cut the molasses down to 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup vinegar) I also marinated it in the fridge for 1 1/2 days. Sweet with a hint of spice at the end!
