The deal is this: We have new friends coming over for dinner Saturday night, and will be out at son's baseball games most of the afternoon. I suggested a brisket, but the timing does not really work and wife wants something else - and to save the brisket for another time. [p]So, the leading candidate right now is a pork tenderloin. This seems like an easy one to marinate overnight and pop on the grill for a quick, direct heat cook. [p]Pork Loin recipes? Or make another suggestion, please. THANKS ! Dickson

    I have seen some cool posts for stuffed pork tenderloin.
    Some with a fruit base that I bet none of your friends have tried. I hope another Egger can post more details.

    Thank you,

    The following recipe is easy and REALLY great. It is important to get at least 8 hours and 24, if possible. I prefer to make with tenderloin, but a loin works too. If I cook a boneless loin, I cut it lengthwise to the approximate size of a tenderloin to get a little more action with the marinade.[p]Kentucky Bourbon Pork[p]2 lb pork tenderloin (2 small)
    1/4 c Kentucky Bourbon
    1/4 c soy sauce
    1/4 c brown sugar - packed
    3 cloves garlic - crushed
    1/4 c Dijon mustard
    1 tsp fresh ginger -- minced or 1/4 t dry
    1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 c vegetable oil[p]Combine marinade ingredients with a whisk. Marinate overnight. Drain. Cook on grill, basting often until done as desired.

    Chubby, please share the recipe -- those look great and the occasional sip of Calvados isn't bad either.
