  1. Whisk together the molasses, vinegar, honey, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, ginger, garlic, salt, and pepper until combined. Remove 1 cup of this mixture to use for basting later. Pour the remaining marinade into a resealable plastic bag, and add the pork tenderloin. Coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to overnight.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil grate.
  3. Remove the pork tenderloin from marinade, and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade. Cook on preheated grill until no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes, basting occasionally with the 1 cup of reserved marinade.

This was good but I used less Molasses (just 1/2 cup) and 1/4 c. Apple Cider Vinegar. I also didn't use 1 c. as a baste. It might be good to marinate it longer than 30 minutes- maybe an hour wou...

Very nice flavor and easy to make. We made it in the oven using a meat thermometer to get it to 160 degrees and then tented it to let it sit for about 5 minutes. Perfectly cooked and great fla...

This recipe was pretty good. I would definitely suggest using less molasses and less apple cider vinegar. Probably a 1/2 cup of each, it makes a LOT of marinade. Also, try blotting the tenderloi...

Im sorry but I did not like this at all. It caused a fight between my fiance and I...I thought that it was pretty funny how a Tenderloin could start an argument.

Made this for my parents this weekend and they absolutely loved it. I used some of the marinade for chicken yesterday and it was really good too.

This marinade does not smell so great, so I was worried, but thankfully this was good! I didn't have 2 cups of molasses - that's really a lot! So I used what I had left, which was 3/4 cup, alo...

We really liked this...instead of grilling it I baked it on 375 for about 45 mins. in all of the sauce made (I cut the molasses down to 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup vinegar) I also marinated it in the f...

Well I used strong flavor molasses because that is all I had. Will probley try again with the mild molasses. But I loved the glaze on the pork and it was fork tender and juicy!

I have made this a few times. i use 1 cup of molasses and 1/2 cup cider vinegar. It is a nice recipe for the grill.
