This is really good. I added slices of fresh ginger to the marinade and marinaded for several hours. Instead of throwing away the marinade, I boiled it down into a fabulous sauce that I served over the sliced pork. TRY THIS!! I promise, you will thank me....
Wow! Was this ever fantastic! I adapted this for Once a Month Cooking by putting the pork in a ziploc bag, adding the marinade and then tossing it into the freezer. The night before serving I took it out of the freezer and let it sit in the fridge all day. I baked it as directed and the meat was so tender and flavourful. Thanks for sharing this, we really enjoyed it!
I made the marinade in the morning and let the tenderloin marinate all day long. It was ready to go in the oven for dinnertime. The meat was extra-tender and juicy. Had a delicious tangy Asian flavor. Hard to believe something so good could be this easy to make. Thanks Nurse Di.
