We’ve never grilled pork before, so hopefully this works out well! Choosing to marinade is always a good thing to ensure flavorful, juicy meat; so when I found this recipe and saw the ratings, I decided it was a safe one to try. The barbecue sauce was so simple to throw together and only needed to be stirred every once in a while. Then the marinating – what could be easier? I love dinners like this one where the longest part is the stay in the fridge.
Verdict: I am so happy that these simple ingredients and steps led to such a tasty dinner; and I will definitely make this again. The barbecue sauce has great flavor, and isn’t too sweet or too spicy for us. I would use the sauce recipe again for another application unless I’m feeling lazy 😉 Thanks for reading, enjoy!
