- Grill pork over medium heat, covered, for 11-13 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer registers 160°, basting with reserved soy sauce mixture.
Well that was a good, easy summer supper. I had to use my oven, seeing as how we live in an apartment (for just the next two weeks--we've bought a house!); half an hour in a 350 oven seemed to work well (and offered a yummy glaze because I dumped all the marinade in the pan with the tenderloin). I served this with oven-roasted corn.
Wow-this is great. The recipe is easy to follow & I loved the zip lock bag idea (new to me) & I cooked in the pork in a pan (I don't have a grill). When it was cooked I set it aside & cooked up the marinade, stirred together 1C of stock and 1 Tbsp Cornstarch & added mix to the hot marinade. Stir gently over heat until thick & pour over sliced pork and mashed potatoes. Fantastic - thank you so much.
This was good. I also used the baking method as it is very cold here right now. I didn't reserve any marinade, but boiled it up while the pork was in the oven to use for basting. It wasn't as big a hit with dh so I probably won't make it again, but I enjoyed it.
