Asian Pork Tenderloin is a fun and flavorful twist on a classic. The soy sauce and sesame oil combined with brown sugar create a tangy marinade enhanced by the boldness of the garlic and dry mustard. The tenderloin will come out tender and juicy and packed with flavor.
1/3 cup lite soy sauce
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
1 1/2 to 2 pounds pork tenderloin
How to Make It
Whisk together first 8 ingredients. Place pork in a shallow dish; add marinade, turning pork to coat. Cover and chill 8 hours. Remove pork from marinade, discarding marinade. Place in a foil-lined roasting pan.
Bake at 450° for 25 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 160°. Let pork stand 5 minutes.
I made this over the weekend, following the ingredients exactly. It is phenomenal! My husband took the leftovers for lunch & sent me an email today simply stating (yumm, yumm, yumm!) Given the kudos from him, I had to encourage others to give this recipe a try. We put it on our list of "amazing for dinner guests" and plan to make it again next week.
Good for a weeknight meal when you want to prep ahead of time, come home and pop in the oven.. not as much flavor as i was expecting. served with jasmine rice & sauteed broccoli, shitakes and carrots.. not as good as CL's peppercorn-encrusted pork tenderloin w/ soy caramel sauce..but a lot less work.
