This turns out perfect everytime. No Fail! You can choose any marinade you like but the cooking technique is flawless. I have shared this recipe with many friends and they always report success. I serve with sauteed mushrooms.


  1. Combine all ingredients and marinate overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  3. Place meat in a foil lined dish for easy clean up.
  4. Cook meat for 6 minutes per pound. Turn off oven-DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR-Let tenderloin remain in oven for one hour. NO PEEKING!

I tied 2 small pork tenderloin together. And 6 minutes at 500 F. Then waiting near 1:15 before opening the oven door. It's tender and perfect. Thanks Vicki :) Made for Holiday tag

I can't believe this worked! I had a 2.5lb tenderloin which I cooked for 15mins beforing turning the oven off. The meat turned out beautifully! Tender, juicy, and just slightly pink in the middle.

The flavor for this tenderloin is :yummy: We have pork tenderloin a few times a month and so I"m always looking for variations to flavor. I was able to utilize your cooking technique because of time allowances and so put it in the crockpot for 5 hours on high. So moist and tender. Threw a few Idaho potatoes on top and the fam was good to go!! Thanks Vicki for sharing your recipe. Made for AU recipeswap-April~
