Grilled pork tenderloin marinated in a deliciously sweet blend of real maple syrup, Dijon mustard, and a hint of sesame oil. Because I have one step-daughter that only eats chicken or fish, I separated some of the sauce into two bags; one for pork and one for 2 chicken breasts. She gave me one of the best compliments she ever has in the last year for my cooking: 'It is fine-dining quality.'
