1 1/4 cups molasses
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
2 large garlic cloves, minced
3 (3/4-pound) pork tenderloins

Combine first 6 ingredients in a shallow dish or heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add tenderloins. Cover or seal, and chill 8 hours.

Remove tenderloins from marinade, discarding marinade.

Grill tenderloins, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 20 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 160°, turning occasionally. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with Red Wine Sauce, if desired.

Note: Tenderloins may be pan seared in a hot skillet to brown and then baked at 375° for 15 to 20 minutes.
