Grilled Marinated Pork Tenderloin



For dinner today we had this yummy tenderloin on the grill.
I used Trader Joe's Soyaki, a blend of soy sauce, teriyaki, garlic and sesame.
It marinated a full 24 hours in the refrigerator, then was brought to room temperature
for about an hour before grilling.  Sprinkle with kosher salt and grill about 12 minutes
 per side for a medium doneness.  Be sure to let the meat rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
They were so tender you could cut them with the side of your fork!  Wow.  So good!
And since I will be extra busy the next few days decorating cookies,
I made extra so we can have leftovers!  Love it when I'm organized
enough to remember to do stuff like that. ha.

  5. Just had a small salad, and thought it was good...then I come on the computer and see your dinner, and that salad lost interest real fast.

    Not only does your dinner sound delicious...but your presentation is so scumptious looking too.

      I'm so proud of you Pat.

  19. looks delicious and I love that there is still a nice pink there, that's close to how I do it. Everyone else I know are babies and want it well, well done, but they also refuse to eat dark meat chicken, which is the best part in my opinion. Love tenderloin. Thanks

    ReplyDelete

    1. yes...I like it with some pink in the middle! I grew up on 'well, well done meat'! It's so much more juicy and flavorful if you don't cook it to death! haha. But I do like my hamburgers well done. And I like the dark meat chicken best, too!
