Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Pork tenderloin is one of the best meats to make for dinner in my opinion. We always have a bunch in our freezer ready to go for a quick dinner. We love pork tenderloin in the oven, slow cooker and the grill.

You really can’t go wrong any way you make the tenderloin. Your pork should taste delicious. The key to making pork tenderloin is to not over cooking it. Temperature should be 140-145 and then it will sit for about 10 to 15 minutes or so covered with aluminum foil. It will continue cooking a bit as it sits.

Pork Tenderloin Marinade

Pork tenderloin because it’s so lean always tastes better when marinated. Even the pork tenderloin you find that are dry rubbed at the market have more than likely been brined in salt before they add the dry rub.

Yes you can freeze leftover pork! Place leftovers in an air tight container or a freezer bag and freeze up to three months.  

The Marinade

This marinade is also great on chicken, salmon  and pork chops. It’s very versatile and can be used on just about anything. We used it on chicken wings a couple of weeks ago.  If you like this marinade, use your imagination and use this marinade on whatever you can think of.

All I did was place my pork tenderloin in a zip lock bag, whisk up a quick marinade.

Instructions:

  • Combine all marinade ingredients and place the pork tenderloin in a plastic zip bag and marinate for at least 5-6 hours. I let it marinate all day.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place in the oven and cook for 30-40 minutes or until the meat has reached 160 degrees. Let rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Pour marinade from pan over pork and serve

  1. Could you do this recipe in a crock pot or instant pot?

    1. I’m sure it can as almost every recipe can be. Just use the cooking time you would normally use for pork

  2. This looks so good! What a great recipe to make for a weeknight or for guests!

    1. Thanks we really love this recipe. Hope you do too if you make it

    1. We don’t usually have too much for leftovers but I would say 3 days or you can freeze the rest for when you need it next

  3. 5 stars
    Fantastic. Moist tender juicy flavorful. What more can one ask for!

    1. Thank you so much Karen! We are so glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

  4. Corinne Larabie says:

    I wonder can you cook it in a slow cooker with the marinade?

    1. Yes you could do that. The slow cooker will cook the marinade just as well as it would if you make it in the oven

    2. Do you cook to 160 or 145 like u said in description

      1. It says cook to 140-145 let it sit for 10 minutes to reach 10 but you can just cook it to 10 or how you normally cook pork if you like

  5. Do you cover while cooking?

    1. No we don’t cover while cooking

  6. Question: are you using the same sauce (marinade) that you had the raw pork in to pour over the pork when done? So when you’re baking the pork tenderloin, it’s in the marinade in a baking dish?

    1. yes it’s the same sauce that cooks while the pork is cooking
