Tip of the month
For you guys who, like me, enjoy cooking on a gas grill, here is a wonderful and tasty alternative. Begin with a pork tender loin, about three inches in diameter. We make our cuts from 1 to 1 ½ inches thick, but that is your decision. Next, wrap with a slice of bacon that is held in place with two toothpicks. Then you have another decision, “To marinade or not to marinade?” The bacon gives the meat a wonderful flavor, but you may prefer to use a marinade sauce or perhaps a bar-b-q sauce. The last time I grilled, we used simply orange juice and lemon juice as a marinade. Try it, you’ll like it!
