    I make this recipe often in the crockpot and the flavors get all the way through the meat. It is wonderful.

    I was a little disappointed that the marinade didn't contribute much to the meat. I ended up marinading it for two days, and while the very outside rim of the slices of pork were tasty, the inside tasted completely plain and dry. It would be nice to have some sort of sauce.

    I loved the flavors in this marinade. Very strong and very yummy. I cooked my tenderloin in the oven instead of on the grill (due to the weather) and it came out great!

    Between the 4 diners this was rated between 3 and 5, so settlement point was 4. I used 2 pork fillets weighing about 330grams each which I cut in half and marinated for 24 hours (would love to turn the marinade into a sauce) and the DH cooked on the indoor ridged grill (no lid) for about 25 minutes total. Thank you Kittencal. Made for ZAAR Stars Tag Game.

    This was a fabulous dinner! I used 5 pork chops, and put it in the marinade for a week (not intentional, but ended up that way due to life) Anyway - grilled them up and served with a salad and brown butter, sage sweet potato gnocchi. This would be perfect with any side dish, summer through spring. Just perfect flavor and balance.

    Instead of marinating the meat, I put all ingredients in the crockpot and the flavors work their way through the pork.
