Italian BBQ Marinade

This is one of the best pork tenderloins we’ve ever made.  We didn’t have any leftovers; It was absolutely delicious!  The marinade was a little sweet from the BBQ sauce and a little tangy from the Worcestershire sauce.  I used Wishbone Italian Dressing and Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce.  Make sure you use a BBQ sauce that you like because it is the dominant flavor in this marinade.  We also tried this marinade on skirt steak, and we both preferred it on the pork.  I plan on trying it on chicken this weekend for Father’s Day.

  2. I read that you grilled it for 16 minutes – can you tell me what temperature on the grill? Sounds delish and want to try it this weekend!

  3. After the marinade, how did you cook the tenderloin? It looks like you grilled it…? How long?
