Great for BBQ season, this 4 ingredient marinade and sauce is perfect with pork tenderloin. I always serve with a ranch veggie pasta salad. (The sauce is really good on that too!) This recipe came from a '00 Quick Cooking. Cook time does not include the 4 hour marinating.
- 2 pork tenderloin (1 lb. each)
- 2⁄3 cup honey
- 1⁄2 cup Dijon mustard
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt (optional)
- Place tenderloins in a large plastic bag or shallow container.
- In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
- Set aside 2/3 cup of the marinade/sauce.
- Pour remaining marinade over pork; turn to coat.
- Seal or cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
- Grill pork, covered, over indirect med.
- heat for 8-9 minutes on each side until internal temp is 150-155 degrees.
- In a saucepan, warm the reserved sauce.
- Slice pork and drizzle sauce over the top of each serving.
This was fantastic. We'll do it again soon. Only had one tenderloin for the 2 of us, so cut the marinade in half. Definitely didn't save enough of the marinade for the drizzling sauce. Will save more next time, it was the finishing touch to a great piece of meat. Thanks for a wonderful (& easy) recipe.
This recipe is ridiculously easy to make. It even works if you only marinate it for 2 hours. But it shouldn't be listed as taking less than an hour to prepare because of the four-hour marinating time. Still, I will TOTALLY make it again.... and again and again and again.
