BBQ Marinated Pork Loin

Hey "Q" fans! I've got a quick little post for you. I made a pork loin for dinner last night and it was really good. I took a one pound (really about 1 1/4lb) pork tenderloin and placed it in a 1 gallon zip bag. I then marinated it in some Abrams Original bbq Sauce for a few hours.

A little note about Abrams: We originally met via twitter and got the chance to meet in person at Pork in the Park. We also both attended the MD State BBQ Bash. Abrams BBQ & Catering is a small, family run catering business plus, they have 2 tasty sauces and are great people. As for the sauce, I love the way the peach flavor in Abrams sauces comes through in the pork. Now on to the good stuff!

After removing the pork loin from the marinade bag, place it in a baking dish. Set the marinade aside for later. Bake the pork in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes per pound or until the internal temp reaches at least 145.

Take the reserved marinade and bring to a boil in a small pan. Since it was with raw meat, you want to be sure and boil it (or throw it away and use fresh sauce for basting). With about 10 minutes left, baste the loin with some marinade and then repeat again in 5 minutes.

Once the loin is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest about 10 minutes. Slice and serve with your favorite sides. I paired my pork loin with some mac & cheese, rice pilaf & mixed vegetables. There you go, nothing to it but to "Q" it!
