Molasses and Cayenne Pork Loin
Craig and I don’t have kids, but we do have a dog that is, in every way, like a child. Rizzo is temperamental, a picky eater, doesn’t like to share and occasionally demands to have things done her way. When we first got her, we thought it would be kind of fun to celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day as Doggie Mommy and Doggie Daddy Day. Of course our family and friends thought we were nuts, but that’s really nothing new.
Over the past few years, we really haven’t celebrated the days, but I thought we’d start up again. It was also a good excuse to fire up the grill for a little bbq.
I used pork loin for this, but you could almost use any pork cut. You could also use this on chicken. I put the pork loin into a plastic, zip top bag, added the marinade and let it marinate overnight. If you don’t have the time to let it sit overnight, at least allow the meat to marinate for 1 hour. Plus, using the zip top bag and the grill means easy cleanup.
