READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by LAURIE

I love pork tenderlions. This came from another web site and is really easy to do on the grill. Cooking time is not including marinading time.

Thank you, Laurie, for posting such a delicious recipe! My family and I really enjoyed this; even my picky 6 year-old. I could not make exactly as directed due to the fact that I did not have any reduced sodium soy sauce (just reduced quantity a little and subbed some water) or dry sherry (substituted an equal amount of mirin - a Japanese cooking wine). A wonderful summer BBQ recipe that I will be making again and again!
