Pro: VERY tender, and I usually have trouble w/ pork tenderloin drying out. Not mushy even after 3 days of marinating.
Con: Salty, even w/ lite soy sauce.
After reading reviews but before testing, I couldn't decide which reviewers were right - salty or not salty. I followed the recipe but used lite soy sauce (b/c that's what I buy) and marinated it for 3 days. I like salt so it's not like I never use it and therefore when into salt shock. It's just that the main taste was salty soy sauce.
Maybe the people who loved it only marinated it briefly?
The pork was in the marinade all day. The taste was really good. Thanks Emilyrae :) Made for Alphabet chef tag game
How have I NOT rated this yet?!? I've made this a few times now, and it is FABULOUS. Simple, quick, and delicious. Even if you only marinate it for an hour or so, it's still very good. YUM! Lazy cooks: don't even dirty a bowl, just throw everything into the ziplock bag and give it a shake before you add the meat. Use a digital meat thermometer so you don't even have to calculate cooking time, just wait for the beep. :)
I was surprised! I read all of the reviews and thought this sounded great. When I started to put it on the grill I thought "it smells just like bottled teriyaki marinade" and was thinking the reviews were overrated. After cooking this BOY WAS I WRONG.....This was SO much better!
One word... great!
Pork perfection! Marinated for 24 hrs. and the tender pork had a wonderful, just slightly sweet crust about it after grilling. Yum. And leftovers great cold, out of the fridge the next day, too!
Very, very good! A keeper, definitely :)
I am sorry, but the two stars were for the pork. We all had severe heartburn for two days! Seeing that the marinade called for straight soy (not even light soy), i cut it by 1/2 with water, and it was still the saltiest food we have EVER eaten! My son is 12 and a salt ADDICT and HE didn't even like it. Sorry.
Was universally scarfed down by a family of picky eaters! I thought it was a bit salty, even though I used low sodium soy sauce and substituted some pineapple juice for the soy sauce. I substituted 1/4 tsp ground ginger for the fresh ginger. I marinated for almost 2 days. But DH thought the flavor was very good and two children asked for seconds ~~ an unusual occurrence. Will definitely make again. Thanks for posting.
I marinated mine for roughly 5 hours. I baked it in the oven at 350 for 50 minutes. It was very tender, although a bit salty for my taste. The inlaws loved it and they didn't think it was too salty.
