Pork Tenderloin Marinated

For this pork tenderloin, the marinade can be changed to your taste. Easily add wine, balsamic vinegar, ginger, Worcestershire sauce or any preferred spices.


1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin (1-2 pieces)


1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup soy sauce (regular or low sodium)

1/4 cup orange marmalade (or 1/4 cup orange juice and 2 tablespoons brown sugar)

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon minced garlic (or garlic paste)

Sprigs of rosemary or 1 tablespoon whole rosemary


Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl. Place pork in 1-gallon bag. Pour marinade over pork. Marinade  for a minimum of one hour; can be prepared the day before.

Preheat grill to medium or oven to 375F. Remove meat from marinade and cook for about 20-25 minutes until pork reaches about 145-150F. There will be a little bit of pink in the roast. Don’t overcook pork or it will become tough.

Rest meat for about 5 minutes and cut into 1-inch slices. Serve with stir-fry vegetables and rice.

Serve 3-4 .
