  5. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to marinate at room temperature for 2 hours.
  6. Preheat a pan on medium-high.

  13. Slice the pork into 1/4 inch-thick slices, spoon the hot marinade over the pork.

This is a definite 5 stars from the whole family. I followed it exactly and your timing was perfect. This was the best pork loin I have ever made. So moist and the marinade boiled to a sauce really made it extra moist. I served this with sauteed spinach and garlic and mashed potatoes. Such a great dinner!
