Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Reduced-sodium soy sauce 2 tablespoons
Honey 1 tablespoon
White wine vinegar 1 tablespoon
Olive oil 1 tablespoon
Orange juice ½ tablespoon
Garlic clove, minced 1
Pork tenderloin, visible fat removed ¾ pound

Directions

  1. Whisk together soy sauce, honey, vinegar, oil, orange juice, and garlic in a small bowl. Pour half of the marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Reserve the other half the marinade to serve as a dressing with the cooked tenderloin.
  2. Place pork in the bag and toss around until it is thoroughly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 ½ to 2 hours, turning at least once. Remove from the refrigerator 20-30 minutes before grilling.
  3. Prepare indoor or outdoor grill. Grill the tenderloin for 20-25 minutes, turning often, until a meat-thermometer registers 150°F. Let rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
  4. Pour the remaining marinade over the sliced pork and serve.
