This is the BEST recipe for tenderloins I've ever found. Juicy, flavorful, a definite crowd pleaser. Our friends grilled these for us on Easter and everyone was begging for the recipe! Enjoy! (Prep time does not include marinating).

Delicious! The meat was very flavorful, and tender. I did leave out the molasses, but still tasted great. I wrapped the meat in foil and it stayed very moist. Will be making again! Thanks, Hazeleyes
