I took this recipe on It's yummy with pork, chicken and even beef. The marinade is enough for 2 pork tenderloin. I didn't include cooking time cause it depends on which cut of meat you use. You can put your meat in the marinade and freeze for later.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix everything in a bowl or a ziplock bag. Put the meat in it for at least 1 hour. But it's really yummy overnight. And I even let some pork tenderloin in it for 48 hours. I like to cut the pork tenderloin in slices lenghwise. That way it absorbs more marinade.
  2. Cook on the bbq but it can also be cook in oven or in a skillet. You can brush with the remaining marinade while it cooks.

This is a really tasty marinade/sauce! More BBQ than southwest to me, so I marinated a piece of beef loin for about 4 hours, then simmered it in the sauce on low heat for about 2 hours, then shredded it. The meat was tender and the sauce had great flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Good, and though I have never tasted BBQ sauce I think the marinade smells similar. I used this on chicken thighs baked in a 350F oven covered part of the time and also broiled for some dark bits part of the time. I used organic corn free ketchup, after searching Google for red wine vinegar substitutes I decided on using tamarind paste mixed with water which is supposedly an Indian substitute for the former and I know we like the taste it imparts. I used 2 tsp garlic salt in place of the garlics and onion powder as I didn't have any powders on hand, freshly ground black pepper, date molasses, therefore I cut down the brown sugar quite a bit, plus the bay leaf. We had this with very delicious, Jasmine Rice With Caramelized Green Onions and wonderful Slow-Browned Carrots With Butter. Made for Please Review My Recipe: from 4 September 2011 ~

A very versatile, quick sauce that most likely you have all the ingredients on hand. I made half the recipe and that made more than enough for our one meal. This doesn't scream south-west to me, more bar-b-que sauce, and due to that I added a few drops of liquid smoke. I used on some tofu and the others used on burgers and said it was great. Would definitely make again!
