“I got this recipe from my sister and I believe she got it from Cooking Light Magazine. When I made it, I thought it wasn't thoroughly cooked because it's so juicy and I can't ever get my pork to turn out that way! Also, I had to use 2 (1 pound) pork loins because I could not find 1 (2 pound) loin and I just split the marinade into two seperate bags. I am guessing on the cooking/prep time.”
