Boiling marinade?

I got a great recipe for a pork tenderloin at the eggtoberfest from SousChef. It tasted great at the fest! My question: the recipe says to take the marinade (basically oil, OJ, sherry, soy sauce, Worcester and other spices) and strain it after marinating the raw tender loin and boiling it for 5-6 minutes and pouring it on the loin after cooking. Will boiling that long kill all the bad stuff from the raw tenderloin? Never heard of re using marinade before, want to get other opinions thx

    Short answer, yes. Boiling will kill any baddies. The time required will allow all parts of the liquid to come to a full boil.

    I have been using marinades to baste for years, and yes it is MUST boil it.  I usually pour the marinade into a pyrex glass measuring cup (2 cup size) and stick it in the microwave till it boils.  So long as you boil it, you should be safe...

    I think it is perfectly safe.  Pork is safe to eat at an internal temperature of 145 degrees, and water boils at around 212 degrees :)

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
