A few weeks ago, I joined my mom, aunt, and sister in Memphis for a girls’ weekend. We try to get together about once a year without kids to shop, eat, and play.
We typically dine in one night, and dine out the other. This last visit, my aunt served a delicious pork tenderloin one night that I’ve been dying to eat again. With just three ingredients and tons of flavor, this easy pork tenderloin marinade is perfect for a busy weeknight and tasty enough for company.
Sweet and Spicy Pork Tenderloin
2 pork tenderloins (they come 2 to a package)
1/4 cup soy sauce (can use reduced sodium)
1/4 cup roasted garlic-flavored rice vinegar
2 T. honey
Combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, and honey in a large ziploc bag. Add tenderloins and marinate in the refrigerator for several hours or, if time permits, overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking dish with foil to create a well for baking meat and marinade. Transfer meat and marinade into foil-lined dish and bake uncovered for about 50 minutes.
Slice meat and serve.
To complete the meal, serve with Bob Evans prepared mashed potatoes (delish!), a green salad, and prepared rolls.
