This delicious grilled pork turns out so moist, tender, and delicious every time. The pork alone is quite delicious, but the sauce really elevates it to a new level.

For a full grilling experience, add your favorite vegetables to the grill to cook along with the pork. Particularly good is grilled zucchini and grilled tomato slices, brushed with olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and your favorite dried herbs. They both grill up fairly quickly and go well with the grilled pork.
