One of the resounding favorites (among both kids AND adults) from the kid’s cooking classes we taught last week was a Roasted Marinated Pork Tenderloin. It was so good, juicy, and flavorful — I just have to share the recipe.
Pork tenderloin is one of my dinner favorites, but I don’t like buying the pre-marinated tenderloins because they’re SO salty. As for this marinade? No salt necessary — just deliciousness. It’s super simple to make, too!
Seriously — please try this recipe for dinner tonight. You’ll love it, and so will everyone else 🙂
- 2 (1 lb. each) pork tenderloins
- 1/2 C apple juice
- 1/4 C dijon mustard
- 1/4 C chopped fresh rosemary
- 8 cloves garlic, minced
- 3/4 tsp. ground pepper
- In a bowl, combine all ingredients except the pork to create the marinade.
- Put raw pork and marinade mixture in a large ziplock bag; refrigerate at least 30 minutes (or overnight, if you want) to let flavor set.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and pour pork and marinade into the dish.
- Bake, uncovered, until an instant read thermometer reaches 160 degrees (about 40—45 minutes). Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
I’m off to school to work on a group project today, and tomorrow morning I’m heading to the beach with a bunch of the grad school gang — we’re staying overnight and camping out on the beach! I’m in charge of bringing s’mores provisions, since s’mores are a total must anytime a campfire is involved, obviously.
Happy Friday — enjoy your weekends!
