Tucker, the marinade sounds great...
but one question, do you think the alcohol in the marinade makes the pork drier?
Other than beer & wine, I have found that marinading meat in 80 proof alcohol tends to draw out the internal fat making it dry...
I hate dry meat...

We have not found the meat to be dry. We have used many marinades for pork. I came across this one this summer because I had gotten some dark rum in St Kitts. It instantly became a family favorite

Thank You!
We have a small pork tenderloin in the freezer, I think I'll try this one out!
I usually do a dry rub for these overnight... but yours sounds good!

A little early in the season but since Lil Seaside will be off playing with her buds, its just Ms Seaside and me. I am thinking about a strip sirloin recipe I picked up down in the Keys a few years ago. It does best in cool weather, but what the heck, the high Monday in Memphis is supposed to be 78 Degrees!!

Here goes:

1 pound NY Strip Steak
Margarita mix (W/O alcohol)
Marinate the steaks over night in a glass flat pan covered in the fridge.
Grill to taste

Top with a big spoon of chili, hotter the better,
Top that with cole slaw
Top that with some grated cheese.

That'll keep your cholesterol up!!!

Some home made Key Lime pie, a Rita or two and a few hours in the pool and hot tub.

Nap time after that.

Sorry, the idea of chili and cole slaw on top of a steak doesn't even sound good to me..

Mango Cream Pie from Southern Cooking

Mango nectar may be found in the Mexican-food sections of most grocery stores.


Ingredients
1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrusts
2 1/2 cups mango nectar
1 cup whipping cream
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Garnishes: whipped cream, fresh mango slices, fresh mint leaves

Preparation
Fit piecrust into a 9-inch pieplate according to package directions; fold edges under and crimp.

Bake at 425 for 7 minutes or until lightly browned; cool.

Combine nectar and next 5 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly; boil, whisking constantly, 1 minute or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.

Stir in butter and vanilla. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, and cool to room temperature. Spoon mixture into prepared piecrust; cover and chill 8 hours. Garnish, if desired. Enjoy!

Carol, I have to agree with you. To me, anything but salt and pepper on a good steak is too much.
