Questions & Replies
I have a question about this recipe. The directions say in order, "Grill marinated tenderloins 5 minutes on each side" followed by "Cut on a diagonal to serve." So is the tenderloin supposed to be cut up first and then grilled or grilled and then cut up? Certainly the entire tenderloin couldn't be cooked through if just grilling for 10 minutes (5 minutes on each side).
Rarely does anyone request pork at my house, but since I made this last month, my husband and daughter have both asked for it several times. I didn't have fresh garlic (used powder) or green onions, and I forgot to add Tabasco, but it was still wonderful. I boiled the marinade, but the family found it a bit too strong. I also grilled it a little longer than specified, and it was juicy and tender. Thanks for a great recipe.
Not much I can add to all of the rave reviews for this. The sauce is great and the meat really absorbed the flavor of the marinade. Since my chili sauce (a Vietnamese brand) is quite hot, I left out the Tabasco. Served with "Forgotten" (black) rice. I broiled mine (it is too cold to grill outside) but will try this again on the grill during summer. Thanks to your mom for her recipe!
