Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin (Simple!)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 35 mins

From "The Busy Family Cookbook." Made this the other night and it was so juicy and delicious! I marinated the pork for about a day and a half. I will post the recipe as written in the book, but put the changes I made as well. (Prep time does not include marinating time.)


  1. In a large ziploc bag, combine soy sauce, sugar and ketchup. Add tenderloin. Seal bag and turn to coat. Marinate at least over night, preferrably longer though.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 (I used the grill instead).
  3. Place pork in 13 x 9 greased baking dish. (I put the remaining marinade in a saucepan, brought to a boil and added some cornstarch to thicken it.) I served the sauce on top of the pork.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 425 for 35-40 minutes OR until meat thermometer reads 160. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

I found this recipe today in my TOH book, as you mentioned in the intro, and wish I had read your notes and the reviews before making. While I really liked the taste of this, I think it would be even better grilled. My only complaint really was that the marinade (which was still on the meat) burned to the bottom of my Pampered Chef stoneware pan. Not much sticks to this pan, but I had one heck of a time cleaning it off after. If planning to bake this in the oven, I would suggest lining the pan with foil. Other than that, a nice recipe with good flavour. I also liked your idea of boiling the marinade and then thickening rather than discarding it. I'll be sure to do it that way next time. Thx for posting Lakerdog2!

super easy and very good! I actually forgot about marinating it overnight and only was able to marinate it for 3 hours and it was still very tender, and tasty!

Good! I will reduce the soy sauce next time. I did double the recipe b/c I used 2 (1lb) pork tenderloin.
