  1. Place pork in a large shallow dish. Sprinkle black pepper over both sides; press gently into the surface.
  2. Whisk soy sauce, honey, olive oil, orange juice, and ginger together in a bowl to make marinade. Stir in garlic and red pepper flakes.
  3. Pour marinade over pork; turn to coat both sides. Cover with plastic wrap; let marinate in the refrigerator, 6 hours to overnight.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  5. Remove pork from marinade, reserving marinade in the dish. Grill pork, covered, basting occasionally with 1/4 of reserved marinade, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), 12 to 15 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board; let rest, about 5 minutes.
  6. Pour 3/4 of reserved marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until reduced by 1/2 into a thick sauce, 3 to 5 minutes. Discard garlic slices.
  7. Slice pork into 1-inch thick slices. Arrange on serving plates. Drizzle thickened sauce over pork.

I guess I did something wrong as this sauce was a little bitter. May have been the orange juice, although, my DH and I both tried the juice before using it as fresh isn't always sweet. Add som...

I marinated mine for a little over an hour in porkchop style cuts then seared both sides after that added the marinade finished cooking through on a lower temp. It turned out very good, just th...
