What’s for Dinner?
Perfect Pork Tenderloin
It’s all in the marinade
-Holly Clegg, www.hollyclegg.com
The secret to grilling is definitely in the marinade! This simple but delectable marinade of soy sauce, honey, and seasoned rice vinegar gives the tenderloin a subtly sweet, savory flavor.
Makes 6-8 servings
2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed of excess fat
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup Nakano Roasted Garlic Seasoned Rice Vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
2. In bowl, combine all ingredients except tenderloins.
3. Place meat in dish or large re-sealable plastic bag, pour marinade over meat. If time permits, refrigerate overnight, turning meat several times.
4. Bake 40-45 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 160ºF. Slice tenderloins, serve.
Quick Tip: Tenderloins come two to a package. If one will be enough for you to serve, halve recipe, freeze other tenderloin.
