Absolutely delicious in every way. The lime and garlic marinade works it's wonders and permeated the loin wonderfully. (We marinaded for two days :) The onion marmelade paired perfectly, it actually tasted like apples and everything was easy to prepare.

I marinaded 3 days, due to weather, & turned out scrumptious.

Absolutely delicious in every way. The lime and garlic marinade works it's wonders and permeated the loin wonderfully. (We marinaded for two days :) The onion marmelade paired perfectly, it actually tasted like apples and everything was easy to prepare. The marinating of the pork and onion marmelade can all be easily done in advance so when the guests show up it's just you and the grill. For our side we made the grilled potato salad, see the link under the recipe.

I have used an almost identical recipe for years (only my marmalade included 2 finely chopped jalapeno peppers), with rave reviews. I ended up omitting marmalade as doesn't add that much. Grilled pineapple instead! Yum!!!

Love the idea of adding jalapeno to the "marmelade"
