  2. Drain and discard marinade from pork. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill pork, covered, over indirect medium-hot heat for 25-40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
  3. Heat reserved mustard mixture; brush over pork before serving. Sprinkle with peanuts if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

"I cut the recipe down for the 2 of us and used pork bits that was labeled for stir fry. Marinated it for 1 hour, baked it (too ugly outside for grill) . It is EXCELLENT!"

"I actually baked this in the oven instead of grilling. It has a lot of good flavor and using the extra sauce definitely gives it a lot of spice! I wish I had remembered to use the honey-roasted peanuts because they could have cooled it down a bit."
