This marinade is good! Sweet with a mustardy bite. I use lite ingredients because we're watching calories, but feel free to go whole hog. HA! Can be made in crockpot but my favorite way is to throw on the grill to sear the outside and give a bit of a smoky flavor and then finish it more slowly in the oven. I'd do it all on the grill but my grill only does hot and super hot!

This was GREAT. We made it for Christmas Eve dinner, and we're making it again for New Years'. We used sugar instead Splenda, and we marinated for two days. 50 minutes in the oven was about 10-15 min too long, but we only had about 2.5 lb and our oven's extra hot. Can't wait to see how try #2 turns out. The marinade just couldn't be better; now if the chefs can get the timing right we'll be the talk of the town :)

Wonderful! This was very easy. I subbed sherry for the bourbon since that's what I had. We will definitely make this again. Thank you!

Absolutely fabulous! This marinade rules! I love the flavor combinations in this. I marinated overnight,but had an unexpected amount of company, and left it to marinate in my fridge for another night while we did something else, Oh my! After the 48 hour marination time, we put it on the charcoal grill, whole, for about 10 minutes per side. I removed it from the grill after searing it like that, and finished it in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.It came out so tender and tasty!We will do this again! DH said to make sure that I saved him a piece for a sandwich tomorrow, because he says,as good as this is tonight, this will make a great lunch too!
