Witch Slapped by Dakota Cassidy and Grilled Pork Steak

Today on Recipe and a Book Recommendation I am excited to share a marinade for grilled pork steak and an audiobook review of Witch Slapped written by Dakota Cassidy and narrated by Hollie Jackson. The marinade is bursting with flavor and is very simple to make. I make this when I am cooking for a large crowd. The pork loins are cheaper than other grilled foods and better for you. Grab a pen and paper because you will want to add the recipe and Witch Slapped to your shopping list.
