Easy Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Stop what you are doing and add this Honey Garlic Pork Tenderloin to your menu. It is DELICIOUS! Hands-down the best pork tenderloin we’ve ever made. We ate this for dinner and leftover on slider buns the next day for lunch. It was SO good. I was sad that I didn’t double the recipe so we could have eaten it again. Needless to say, this is back on the menu this weekend. I can not wait!

How to Cook Pork Tenderloin

This pork is very simple to make. Whisk together Italian dressing, Worcestershire sauce, honey, chili powder, and garlic. Pour the marinade over the pork and let it hang out as long as you can before cooking. I usually mix the marinade up before going to bed and let the pork marinate in the refrigerator overnight before cooking. The longer the better! More flavor!

I know some people are intimidated with cooking pork. No need to worry! It is super easy. Basically, you cook it like a steak. Like a steak, pork can be pink on the inside. Pork is perfectly safe to eat when it reaches an internal temperature of 145ºF.

We cooked the pork on the grill, but you can also cook it inside. 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.

    1. Yes – you will need to adjust the cooking time to ensure it is cooked to an internal temperature of 145ºF.

  1. Hi Stefanie, what Italian Sauce did you use? We live in Switzerland and if we cannot find it here then I will order it over Internet. Thanks Regards SusanneSusanne

      1. Made this last night and it was delicious! Came out perfect and marinated overnight. Super easy and did not disappoint!

  2. The marinade sounds wonderful! Can’t wait to try it. Would it be possible to cook in a crockpot? I would assume that you would sear it like you would to put it in the oven. How long in a crockpot? 6 to 8 hours on low?
