Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin is, like the name implies, easy! It is flavorful and pretty quick, making it the perfect main dish for any night of the week.
This Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin is a great way to give pork tenderloin delicious flavor in a short amount of time. It also makes the pork tender and juicy. I modified this recipe from Rachael Ray. It doesn’t require too many ingredients, in fact, I had everything to make the marinade in my kitchen.
Even though I plan our meals weekly, I really like 3o-minute marinades. I like to get the meat ready, and then put it in the fridge to marinate while I am getting the rest of the meal prepped for cooking.
Most of the time, we eat some kind of potato and a vegetable with this Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin. It doesn’t take me 30 minutes, usually, to prepare the potatoes and veggie, so I can leisurely chop and prep them. Then, when it has been about 30 minutes I will start everything, depending on how long everything is going to take.
One of the trickiest parts of cooking is having all of the dishes ready around the same time. This is especially difficult when I am developing new recipes. I try to guess-timate how long something is going to take to cook, but sometimes my guess is way off. There have been a few times that we ate our meal in courses, because one of the dishes took a lot longer to cook than I anticipated. Luckily, my family is understanding.
Some side dish ideas to go with this Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin are mashed potatoes and these Super Easy Pan Fried Fresh Green Beans.
