The surprise ingredient in the marinade is coffee–it contributes a rich, almost smoky flavor to the meat and blends magically with the vinegar, mustard and molasses. When you're ready for a break from more traditional tomato-based barbecue sauces, this is the recipe you need. Recipe: Barbecued Pork Tenderloin

How long can you keep raw pork, in a barbecue marinade, in the refrigerator before you must throw it away?
Thank you, Karen

Raw meat of any kind should not be kept more than 3-5 days from the date of purchase, and that's assuming you bought it before the sell-by date. The fact that the pork is in the marinade does not in any way extend its shelf life.
