Easy Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Pork tenderloin is my favorite cut of pork and this ginger marinade is my favorite way to prepare it. This recipe is from a friend. She has been making this for years and told me that I had to give it a try. OMG! She was right. This pork is AH-MAZ-ING! It is a little sweet, a little tangy, and a whole lot of yummy. I’m not really a fan of ginger, so I was worried about the flavor but it totally works!

How to Make Ginger Marinated Pork Tenderloin

This pork is very easy to make. Whisk together brown sugar, canola oil, soy sauce, red wine vinegar, ginger, and garlic. Pour it over the pork tenderloin and let marinate for at least 12 hours. When ready to cook, remove the pork from the marinade and grill or bake until it reaches an internal temperature of 145ºF.

  • When cooking pork tenderloin, it is important to remove the silver skin on the side of each pork tenderloin. The silver skin is a silvery-white sheen membrane on the pork tenderloins. It is a thick connective tissue and it doesn’t break down when the pork is cooked. I use a knife and carefully cut it off. If you don’t remove the silver skin, you will have a tough uneatable area on each tenderloin.
  • For a gluten-free pork dish, make sure to use a gluten-free soy sauce such as Kikkoman Gluten-Free Soy Sauce.
  • Can Pork be pink? Yes! It is perfectly SAFE to eat pink pork. Pork needs to have a minimum internal temperature of 145ºF. We like to cook it on the higher end of medium-rare and let it rest for about 5 minutes before slicing. It only takes about 15 minutes to reach 145ºF, depending on how big your pork tenderloins are.
  • To cook the pork inside, pan sear the pork for 2 minutes on all sides. Place the pork on a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 400ºF for 10 to 12 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Pull the pork out of the oven at 145ºF and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
