Recipe: Mop and Marinade Sauce

Summertime means Grilling Time!  With this recent heat wave we’ve experienced (112 says my car!) I can’t see turning on the oven for anything.  It just heats up the entire house and my air conditioner runs non-stop as it is.  Time to fire up the grill!  This marinade is sweet and tangy and is perfect with pork. It can also be used for beef and even chicken.  Even more important: I have each of these ingredients in my pantry on any given day.  Try it tonight if you are stumped on what to do with that bare pack of meat.  Original recipe from Boomette
