About 2 weeks ago I received an e-mail from a gentleman named Al. Al represents Country Bob’s Sauces and Al asked me if I would be willing to test and review Country Bob’s All-purpose Sauce on my BLOG. After checking out Al’s story, (I spoke to a sweet little lady at Country Bob’s and then spoke to Al himself because I wanted to be sure I wasn’t dealing with any e-mail weirdos), I found out Al was legit and he wanted to send me two bottles of their sauce. Woo-hoo! Color me happy. Al was so nice – I love folks who ooze niceness!
A few days later I received Al’s package and I’ve been waiting for the weather to cooperate so we could grill up one of recipes included with the sample bottle of sauce. Sunday morning I prepared the marinade for Country Bob’s Grill Pork Tenderloin. Country Bob’s believes in my motto – simple, easy and just a few ingredients. Since summer is on the way – I love grilling. I don’t have to turn on the oven and hubby can ‘cook meat over fire’ – bang on his chest and enjoy a beverage in the process. It’s all good. Here’s the breakdown:
Country Bob’s Grilled Pork Tenderloin
Ingredients: Pork Loin Roast – Boneless, garlic, Sesame Oil (I love this stuff. Rich and Nutty. All men should strive to obtain those two qualities.), the STAR of our recipe – Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce, Soy Sauce, and ground ginger. That’s it!
Place the pork loin in a shallow glass dish (this one is 13 x 9) and then pierce the meat on both sides with a lot of holes so the marinade can seep into the meat.
Grab a metal or glass mixing bowl to mix up your ingredients. I tell you this because sesame oil is very nutty and it might make your plastic bowls take on that smell and flavor. Here are the measured ingredients:
1 cup Soy Sauce
Entire 13 oz. bottle of COUNTRY BOB’S ALL PURPOSE SAUCE
1/3 cup Sesame Oil
1 Tablespoon Ground Ginger
3 Cloves garlic (but I love this stuff so much – I used four – BIG ‘UNS)
Place chopped garlic cloves and ginger in the bowl and add your other ingredients. Mix well with a whisk.
LOOK AT THAT RICH SAUCE! – Pour the sauce over the pork loin. Cover with foil or in my case, this pyrex has a lid. Place in refrigerator for about 4 hours or longer to marinate the meat. Flip the meat once every hour.
Allow for a 2 1/2 hour cooking time and prepare the grill/coals accordingly. You’ll want to cook this over a low heat. Tim placed the coals at one end of the grill and cooked the meat at the other end closest to the side air vent to pull the heat towards the meat.
Cook the meat until the internal temp reaches 180 degrees. Under cooked pork is a bad thing!
My apologies for the focus job. Hubster took this photo without changing the settings on my little camera. I made a batch of ‘Finishing Sauce’ to baste with and for extra sauce for dipping. Same as marinade, minus the garlic. Y’all – this was wonderful! The meat was moist and Country Bob’s Sauce provided the rich flavor with an Asian zing to it because of the Soy Sauce and Sesame Oil. We gave Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce a big thumbs up! The sauce (by itself) is wonderfully rich to use as sauce for any meat. The men commented it beat any other sauce on the market. Honestly, I think you could mix with a lot of different ingredients and come up with rich sauces for pork, steak, chicken, fish, shrimp, whatever. I’m anxious to try it with honey to glaze a chicken. For dinner I served the loin with salad, corn, and dinner rolls. There wasn’t any left. Everyone loved it!
And, here’s the kicker – I’m giving away a sample of Country Bob’s today! Leave a comment (one per person) to enter the contest. I’ll announce the winner tomorrow. If you provide some linky-love from your site, you’ll get an extra-chance to win. Thanks y’all and get out there and grill this up. You’ll love it!
