I love this marinade - definitely agree that you need to increase the marinading time though, I do at least 8 hours, and usually over night.
It was a lot of effort and the flavors didn't move over to the meat from the marinate as well as I hoped. If I try it again I will definetly increase the marinating time, as well as decrease the size of the loin pieces.
