"The best grilled meat ever!"
Serving Size: 1 (484 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I used this recipe for the 4th of July get together for 24 people. Course I have to increase this by 3rd's because I had about 12lbs. to get ready. This is the most fantastic recipe for port tenderloin it was moist and tender, the flavor was outstanding. Needless to say I didn't have any leftovers. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe. It is a keeper in my house."
"Excellent recipe. I marinated it for 2 days and the result was a very tender meal. The flavours combined very nicely. Next time I might cut back to 3/4 C soy sauce as for my personal preference I found it a little salty even though I used low salt soy sauce."
"Excellent recipe. Easy to prepare and the finished dish was tender and delicious. I let the pork marinate for 2 1/2 days and broiled it in the oven. The marinade formed a tasty crust. Will do it again. For now, I have the similar pork recipe from Rodger (#31303) marinating in the fridge."
"This was awesome. My, sometimes, hard to please, husband just loved it. It only had time to marinate it for 4 hours. So tender! I didn't change a thing but I did cook it about 30 minutes (could be the thickness of the tenderloin made a difference in the cook time). I served it with broccoli salad and rice. Kids liked it too!"
"I used your recipe last night for dinner after letting it marinate for only 3 hours and it was wonderful. I cooked it on the grill to medium well. Very moist. I halved the recipe as I had 1 1/2 lb of pork tenderloin. Even my kids liked it. We had mashed potatoes, creamed corn and bread hot out of the oven. Excellent"
"Very good recipe. I didn't have a cup of soy sauce, so I used half a cup of soy sauce and a half cup of teryaki sauce. I also added 1 tbsp. of honey. I broiled mine for about 25 minutes and turned it a few times to keep from burning. My fiance likes pork cooked well done. Turned out very nice and had a wonderful flavor. I served with vegetable fried rice. Highly recommend. "
"This was delicious! My family loved it & it made plenty! Next time I need to take a dish to someone, I will make this & keep one tenderloin & take them the rest. Thanks!"
"Absolutely, melt in your mouth delicious. Not a thing to change recipe is just perfect the way it is. "
"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."
