Marinating pork tenderloin doesn’t take a lot of ingredients, so this easy recipe is a great way to get started if you’re looking for the best pork tenderloin marinade!
What You’ll Need
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
- 2 1/2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 3 1/2 tablespoons of mustard
- 2 1/2 tablespoons of minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon of rosemary
- 1 tablespoon of parsley
- 1 1/2 tablespoon of thyme
- Mix everything in a bowl and stir it manually until the marinade is thick and all of the ingredients are well-mixed.
- Save 1/2 cup of the marinade so you can coat the pork later.
- Place your pork and the remaining marinade in a resealable bag and stick it in the refrigerator. You can massage the marinade into the pork through the bag before you place it in the fridge.
- Rotate the bag every so often in the fridge so the pork gets coated.
- Let the pork marinate in the fridge for about three hours before you get cooking.
You can also refrigerate your pork for up to 24 hours or leave it overnight, but it’s best that you get to it in that timeframe for a better taste. Realistically, you’d want to marinate your pork anywhere from 3-12 hours. It’s also possible to freeze your marinated pork for up to three days, but if you do freeze your meat you want to make sure that you thaw it out in a safe manner by placing it in the fridge.
You can tweak the quantities of the ingredients as you see fit, but this is the recipe we like best! It’s all about whatever you’re comfortable with and the good news is that you can always play around with different ingredients in the kitchen. This is just a little something to help you get started!
