Printed in Good Food Magazine. Recipe from '333 Belrose Bar & Grill' in Wayne, PA. This flavorful dish has a rich coffee flavor with hints of sweet molasses and spicy chili. Begin marinating the pork one or two days ahead for best results. The mirin can be found in the Asian foods section of some supermarkets or at Japanese markets. Marinating time is NOT included in prep time.

This is an awesome dish. It is very moist and flavorful. The ingredient list can seem a bit daunting at first, but it is definately worth your time and the effort to find all of them! I marinated it for the full 48 hours and would do it again.
WOW! Need more stars*******. This is really good. I marinated the tenderloins 24 hours, so the flavors really got into the meat, which turned out juicy and tender. It was not a good grilling day here so I used the George Foreman (I have the large "Next Grilleration") Worked great, so I will be making this dish in the dead of winter! The marinade would be good on beef also!
