  1. I have not tried this recipe yet but I wanted to mention that this Recipe Says it is for Pork Tenderlion, yet the pictures and and the Title of the Recipe card does say Loin. These are two different things and for those that don’t know could be confused. They both don’t cook the same. Tenderloin can be cooked on high heat while a Loin should roasted Slow at a lower temperature.

    I didn’t have molasses so I used honey and it was delicious! Will definetley make again. May even try maple syrup next time. Truth…not a fan of molasses.

    • It’s made on the grill, not an oven. If you’d prefer to make it in the oven, I would preheat to 350 and bake it for 30 mins before testing for doneness. However the marinade will caramelize better on the grill.
