Tempt My Tummy Tuesday…Marinated Pork Tenderlion

by Lisa on October 4, 2010

Tempt my Tummy TuesdayI really like pork tenderloin, but have not been too adventurous with this protein. However, my parents mentioned they really enjoy grilling their pork tenderloin. So, this weekend, I had hubby grill us up some pork – after a conversation with my dad, the grill master. The pork was tender and juice. This was a win. Of course the only fail here was I forgot to take a picture of our dinner. Sorry. What was I thinking?

Marinade for pork tenderloin:
1/4 cup molasses
2 Tbsp. spicy brown mustard
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 pork tenderloin (1 lb.)
Use a large resealable plastic bag. Combine the molasses, mustard and vinegar; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
To cook: Prepare grill. Drain and discard marinade. Now grill per your preference. Here is one method – grill the pork, covered, over indirect medium- hot heat for 25 – 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees, turning occasionally. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

I served this meal with steamed broccoli (a favorite of my 3 yo), and mashed red potatoes.

I found this recipe in the August/September 2010 issue of the Taste of Home Simple & Delicious magazine. This magazine has been wonderful and provided me with several really GREAT new dinner ideas.

I loved easy marinades–and they are so much better than premixed ones. 🙂

I’ve actually never made pork, for no reason than I don’t know much about it. This recipe looks great, and I hope to try it soon. Thanks for hosting, I love blog parties!

Wow, I bet that is a tender pork loin. I love Taste of Home mag too. Even better than the more expensive ones. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. I am glad I made it back to visit with you. Also, thanks for the response via e-mail.


Jacqueline October 4, 2010 at 8:43 pm

I looove pork tenderloin. It is as versatile as chicken. This marinade sounds super easy and delish. We love the tenderloin any time of year and it is so great for parties, especially large crowds.


Sherry October 4, 2010 at 8:56 pm

Oh, I love pork loin. This one sounds like a keeper, too. 🙂

Thank you for TT! 🙂

I love a grilled pork tenderloin and this recipe looks awesome! I used to bake them until I tasted a grilled one. Way better! Linking up with you again this week. I always love to read some of your followers and of course, your blog is great.

Alea October 5, 2010 at 1:05 am

This sounds wonderful! I am hosting a large party at the end of the month and have wanted some items that I can cook on the grill because I know I can’t do it all with only one stove. Think this might do the trick!


Satakieli October 5, 2010 at 2:04 am

Sounds delicious! Thank you so much for hosting!


April@The 21st Century Housewife October 5, 2010 at 3:32 am

Your pork marinade sounds lovely, Lisa. We really like pork tenderloin in our house too. It sounds lovely with the steamed broccoli and mashed red potatoes. It would also go with the scalloped potatoes I’ve linked up this week 🙂 Thanks so much for hosting Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!

I think pork tenderloin is one of those underused meals … so easy, but with a marinade like this one, delicious!!! Loving all of the fall-ish recipes that are shared today!

We don’t eat pork, but I could see something similar working for chicken. I love anything with mustard.

That sounds super yummy! Do you think I could substitute brown sugar for the molasses? Thanks for the link up!

I bet the brown sugar would work just find. 🙂

Ooooo yum! That looks super easy with so few ingredients in the marinade, too. Perfect for the grill – at least for the little while longer that we can use it until it starts to snow 🙂
