It’s the weekend. The weekend before the 4th of July. Sadly, I have to work on Monday but we were looking for something to grill. We had some pork tenderloin in the freezer and thought ahead to marinate it for our Sunday night dinner. The result? A succulent and delicious marinated grilled pork tenderloin that couldn’t be easier!
