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

Yum! Very good marinade. I also left out the molasses (didn't have any) and it was still great! I actually used the recipe on pork sirloin steaks but will try it with tenderloins next time - I'm quite sure there will be a next time. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Delish! LIke Hazeleyes, I didn't have molasses, but it didn't matter. There was no chance of that tenderloin surviving to the leftover stage. I served it with grilled asparagus marinated in a lemon-olive oil vinagrette, and it was a perfect compliment. It even pleased the uber-fussy husband. Will serve again!
