It's Just To Easy , A Marinated Pork Tenderloin

This Marinated Pork Tenderloin is very flavorful and moist, and tender . The first time I made it. I thought it was to die for,it was so tasty and practically melted in my mouth. My family loves this pork recipe as well. And the folks in the small retirement home that I work at as a cook. It was a good thing that I made a big pork tenderloin, because all of my residents wanted 2nds. At lunch that day there were eleven people. I also made seasoned mashed potatoes , homemade biscuits, applesauce and a veggie to go with the marinated pork.


2 cups of canola oil

1/2 cup of soy sauce

1/2 cup of white vinegar

4 tablespoons of lemon juice

4 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoon minced fresh parsley ( or packaged )

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1/4 teaspoonof black pepper

Pork tenderloin ( any size)

You can double the recipe if it does not look like enough marinade for your liking. I always make extra to be on the safe side. You can also make a dipping sauce to go with it, if you want to.


In a large resealable plastic bag, or a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients, then add the pork. Don't forget to poke holes in the pork with a fork, this way the marinade will really soak into the pork. Seal the bag and turn and squish around to coat the pork well , and really soak into the meat. Refrigerate the pork overnight.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Remove the pork and discard the remaining marinade. Let the pork sit a bit to take the chill off of it. I never put cold meat right in the oven. Place the pork in tin foil, enough to fully wrap the pork in, before sealing the pork in the foil, add the rest of the marinade over the top of the pork. Bake in a 325 degree oven until the thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.


1 cup of mayonnaise ( I would suggest real mayo, not light or fat free, it won't taste right )

4 tablespoons of Dijon mustard

4 teaspoons of prepared horseradish

2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce

All you do is just simply mix all the ingredients together. And it is ready to go. No cooking involved.

And there you have it, nice and easy. A wonderful dish if you are having company over for dinner. It would even make for a great holiday meal! You may even want to try it in the crock pot, which I will be doing the next time I make this marinated pork recipe. I have a feeling it will just be falling apart. I am also thinking of trying it with chicken breasts to see how it will taste. Well thanks for reading, and I hope you will want to give this delicious recipe a try. Have a great day!
