I love Ice Box Coffee! 
I love Pork!
So the combo makes perfect sense to me.
This recipe will give you the most succulent, flavorful pork you have ever had. It's simple, fun and absolutely delicious. We used the grill to cook our tenderloin, but this could easily be cooked in your oven as well.

1 7⁄20 lb
Pork Tenderloin
1 c
Icebox Coffee Drink
1⁄4 c
Molasses (I use GMO free)
3 clv
Garlic (Minced)
1 t
Dried Mustard
1 t
Dried Ginger
1⁄2 t
salt (I use kosher salt)
1⁄4 t
1⁄2 t
Cayenne Pepper
Sprigs Fresh Oregano


Wisk together molasses and Icebox Coffee until well combined. 

Add spices.

In a ziplock bag place sprigs of oregano and pork tenderloin.

Using your hands on the outside of the bag, rub the organo and pork tenderloin together for about 30 seconds. (this will infuse the oregano flavor into the meat.)

Pour the Coffee, molasses spice blend over the pork.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 24.

Remove marinated meat and allow to come to room temperature.

Remove the cooking grate from the grill and use preferred method to light your coals. 

Heat your charcoal grill until the coals are gray and ashy (very hot). 

Lightly oil your cooking grate and place back on the grill, with the lid closed, for 2-3 minutes. 

Place the pork loin on the cooking grate.

Close lid.

Cook in 1 1/2 minute incriments, rotating a quarter each incriment, for 12-18 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 140. 

Remove from grill and place on a large piece of heavy duty foil that has the edges folded up. 

Let rest 10 minutes.
