Pork Tenderloin with Pan Sauce


This recipe is not new to the blog. I posted it about 2 years ago but it definitely warrants a re-post and an updated picture.

This is my "go-to" pork tenderloin recipe. It's pretty foolproof and sure to be a hit with all-ENJOY!


I'm pretty happy with the time change from last week. I can actually start taking pictures of dinner dishes again--Yay!!


I served this up with some roasted "teeny-tiny" baby potatoes and my daughter's favorite veggie, brussel sprouts!

Ingredients:
1⁄2 cups olive oil
1⁄3 cup soy sauce
1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon
1-2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1-2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 tsp dry mustard
Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 1-lb. pork tenderloin (silver skin removed)

Directions:
Combine all marinade ingredients and reserve 2-3 Tbsp. Place the pork tenderloin and marinade in a Ziplock bag and let marinate for at least 3-4 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a hot skillet over medium-high heat, sear each side of tenderloin for 2-3 minutes. Place in the oven and cook for 30-40 minutes or until the meat has reached 160 degrees. Let rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

Pan Sauce:
Pan scrapings from pork tenderloin
1/2 cup of chicken broth
2-3 tbsp of pork marinade (thoroughly mixed)
1-2 tsp butter

Meanwhile, place the skillet back on the stove over medium heat. Add the chicken broth and scrape up all the browned pieces from the bottom of the pan. Add the marinade and let it boil down for 2-3 minutes. Add the butter and remove from heat stirring until butter has melted. Pour over the pork tenderloin.

    1. In the recipe above it looks like it says 11-lb pork roast.

    2. Actually it says.. 1 1lb pork roast.. just a spacing issue. :)

  4. When do you pour the pan sauce over the tenderloin?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Dumb question, but after searing it do you bake it in the marinade? I'm assuming no, as that is what the pan sauce is for when it's done. Is that right?

    ReplyDelete
  6. You are correct....no baking in marinade.

  7. I made this last night. The flavor was excellent, but I had to cook it for 40 min. to get it to the 160 temp.

  8. I made this for my mother for Mother's Day and it was fantastic, but I had to bake mine for about 40 mins as well.

  9. I had to cook mine for much longer as well!

  10. Thank you all for the feedback about the cooking time. I'm going to update the recipe accordingly.

  11. I pinned this to Pinterest earlier this week, and it worked fine. However, today when I tried to click through to the recipe from my own pin (and a whole lot of other peoples' as well), I got an error reading "Users have reported that this links to spam or other inappropriate content." Any idea why this would be? You may want to contact Pinterest, because I'm guessing this means your other recipes will throw the same error.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Thank you so much for letting me know. I was not able to find to find the Spam pin but if you do you should report it so pinerest can remove it from their site. I reported this too...apparently it's becoming a big problem on Pinterest. Very frustrating...thanks again!

  13. Mine did take 40 minutes but I just wanted to comment again to let you know much we enjoyed it. YUM! The pan sauce is perfect, I will definitely be making this again :)

  14. I made this last night and it was a HIT! My daughter, who is very picky, had 4 pieces. I will be making it again! Thank you!

  15. I'm looking forward to trying this, but wanted to let you know I had the same problem with the Pinterest link. More than that, it blocks me from being able to repost the recipe due to 'inappropriate content or spam'. Just wanted to let you know, and I've noted your blog so I can at least get here directly!

    ReplyDelete
  16. This recipe was a huge success! Thank you! My friend also had a problem linking to this page through Pinterest using the same link that I had used earlier in the week, so it is occurring with pins that didn't start out as spam but now are no longer working. I repinned it as an original pin. I am so glad I remembered the name of your blog or I may not have been able to find it again. Hope that everything gets resolved soon, because this recipe is a keeper!!

  17. I tried this recipe this weekend. We marinated it for about 2-3 hours and needed something to eat, so we just sliced it thin, put flour on it and fried it. OMG....it was so tasty. Can't wait to try the regular recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Just made this and it was awesome!!!!!!!!!! the pork tenderloin I bought was packaged by 2 lbs and had 2 pieces inside. I baked them both so of course it took longer - around 1 hour. Baked some new potatoes on the side of them as well. Sooooo good! thanks for the recipe, will definitelly make again!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. If I use boneless country style ribs instead of tenderloin do you think it would still work?

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is probably a dumb question, but I'm new to the cooking game! (outside of Kraft mac&cheese or scrambled eggs. :P) when you put it in the oven, are you baking it in the skillet & then making the sauce while it's resting? Or do you bake it in something different & make the sauce towards the end? This sounds delish, can't wait to try!

  21. ...also I baked it in the marinade cause I didn't read all the comments till later hehe, but it turned out super moist and nice, my friend baked it without the marinade and hers turned out dry.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I Love Love Love this recipe!!! Awesome Flavor!!! The problem is...there is never any leftovers for me to take for lunch the following day! I have never seen my family enjoy a meal as much as when I made this. I'm going to try the marinade on a larger cut of meat just to see if I can get me a doggie bag!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Made this today and my husband ate it till he was sick! It was so good, juicy, and tender. I made the marinade exactly like the recipe, except I didnt have enough soy sauce so I substituted Dale's to make up the rest of the 1/3 cup. I also let it marinade in the frig for two days(mainly because we went out of town). Also, we didnt pan sear or bake, we put on grill for 25 minutes. It was terrific.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I made this last night and I must say that it was the best pork tenderloin I've ever had. Thank You!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Do you think this would work ok on the grill instead of baking?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't see why not...you just need to save some of the marinade before grilling if you want to top it off with sauce.

  28. Just saw this on Pinterest and realized I have a tenderloin in the freezer....pulling it out now to make this for tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Do you think this would be good grilled? In other words, is the marinade enough flavor without the pan sauce? I've been itching to grill a pork tenderloin!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Have you ever done this in the slow cooker?? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I didn't have time to marinate it so I am putting it in the slow cooker with the marinade. Hope it turns out!! I know you aren't supposed to cook it in the marinade but I'm doing it.....I'll let you know!

      Delete
  31. this really does look great, going to try it out for sure!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is excellent!! I may try baking it 'in' the marinade next time though. I wouldn't say it was dry, but it wasn't as moist as it could have been. I also doubled the recipe and used 2 loins and let them marinade over night. (I may have to do 3 next time though, as I have a constantly hungry 16 yr. old son...lol). I will definately be making this again, and recommending it to others.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I made it several times "in" the marinade, and many times as the recipe is written (not in the marinade) and we all MUCH preferred it not in the marinade! The meat not in the marinade was as moist as could be (actually more moist than the one in the marinade!). I think the bigger difference between moist and not moist meat lies in the amount of cooking time. When we cooked it closer to 30 minutes (35 minutes max) the meat was moist and tender. But when we cooked it 40 minutes, the meat dried out (even in the marinade). The other big difference was marinating it overnight. When we marinated it only for a few hours, the meat was less moist than when we marinated it 24 hours, turning it over midway...

  34. Someone has already asked Maria if she's tried this in a crockpot and she hasn't, but does anyone have an opinion on how it would turn out if you just toss the whole batch of marinade, along with the pork tenderloin, into a crockpot and let it go? Would it be too strong?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Can easily be made in the crockpot, marinated over night , put in the pot with the chicken stock, butter combo in the recipe with a few tbsp if marinade on low 5-6 hrs, Very Good

      Delete
    2. I did this - just dumped it all in the crockpot. i did not premarinate, sear, or do anything else. just took the pork loins out of the fridge and put them in the crockpot with the marinade in the recipe. it was still very good BUT i think it would have been a lot better baked.

      Delete
    3. pork tenderloin is really much too lean to do in the crockpot and cooks very quickly in the oven or even panroasted. It's done at 145 degrees and let rest a few minutes.

      Delete
  35. I hope to try this soon and grill it. Was also wondering about the roasted potatoes.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Can you please tell me how to roast the baby potatoes?

    Also, I made this and it was wonderful, but I only cooked it 30 minutes (as in your original recipe). It came out perfectly at 30 minutes--it definitely would have been overcooked if I'd left it in the full 40 minutes! Just goes to show how our individual ovens really can vary. Thanks for a great recipe, and I'd love to know how you made your potatoes because they look great in your photo!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For the potatoes, I just seasoned with salt and pepper then coated with a little extra virgin olive oil and roasted at 425 degrees until throughly cooked.

  37. Does it taste like mustard at all? I'm not a fan and would like a substitute or do you think I can just leave it out?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, not mustardy at all. Keep the mustard powder in.

      Delete
    2. With a recipe like this, you won't even taste the ground mustard; It'll just add a little zing to the recipe.

      I'm trying the recipe tonight for my family although I doubled it since the going consensus is that one just wasn't enough of this goodness.

      Thank you!!

  39. Had this cut thin for sandwiches. They were great.

    ReplyDelete
  40. This recipe looks amazing!!!but no real reason to cook to 160. It also raises 10 degrees as it rests. Trichinosis is killed at 132 degrees F. so you can cook pork to med. rare if you wish.. although there have been no cases of Trichinosis since WW2 due to changes in the way pork is raised/fed. Most chefs say 140 is the temp to shoot for. the usda recommends 145, with a 3 minute rest time, but that would not allow for the juices to redistribute. All that being said, I can't wait to try your recipe!! thank you for sharing!

    1. Yeah...that's what the original source had as a temp. I like my beef med-rare but everything else (chicken, pork) more to the well done side.

  52. I'm about to make my inexperience in the kitchen apparent, but I have a question: Do you put the pan sauce on the meat BEFORE cooking it in the oven? I originally read it as a sauce to be served over the meat after it's cooked, but now I'm second guessing.

  60. what is the pork marinade that you add to the sauce? I have been in Germany for a while so it may be something I haven't seen.

    ReplyDelete
  61. This was my first time making a tenderloin, and I could not be happier! Your recipe helped me prepare the best pork dinner ever! This will be my go-to recipe for tenderloin, whether it is just my husband and me, or when we have friends to feed! Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Okay.... just a couple of questions. I am going to make this tonight! Love all the positive comments! Since I have a two pound tenderloin, do I double everything? About how many two pounds will serve? Also, when you sear the tenderloin, do you put all the marinade from the bag in it as well or do you add it when you bake it in the oven? I understand you use the same pan in the oven as the one you seared it in? No covering of the loin? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I was not sure if that last post made it because I exited out of this. Just a couple of questions to this great sounding recipe... First if I have a 2 lb tenderloin, do I need to double everything? Also when I sear the loin, do I dump all the marinade from the bag as well or do I just add it when I bake it in the oven? I use the same pan I seared it in when I bake it? And finally, I don't cover it while baking? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Making this for a second time tonight. Just a "frugal" tip if you want more pan sauce, I was told by a chef (and I have read it over and over online) unlike apoultry marinade a pork or beef one can be used to turn in a sauce. So don't discard the marinade; instead boil it for atleat 5 minutes to kill the bacteria. I do it all the time and so far we've been OK....lol!! But I get those that rather not take the chance but like I said it seems to be the norm when researched. Can't wait for dinner tonight!!!

  65. Going to try this tonight.

  66. Made this on Friday night - I set it up to marinate the night before. It was tasty from the marinade & the pan gravy added to it. I cooked it for about 40 minutes, but, probably should have taken it out at 30 minutes. Easy & delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I made this the other day and it was very tasty!! After marinating it, I dumped the whole thing meat and marinade into my big skillet/pan that's also made to go in the oven and cooked it that way. I totally forgot to do the pan sauce, but it was great without it!!! Thanks!!

  75. I found your recipe on Pinterest. I nearly quadrupled it for a very large roast. I pulled it out of the oven at 160degrees and let it rest for ten or so minutes. It was the tastiest and most moist pork I have ever roasted. It is going in my permanent file. Thank You!!

  77. Made last night and was a big hit! My 265 lb (football player) 17 yr old ate a whole pork tenderloin by himself. (luckily I made 2.)

Thanks for the recipe.

  78. It was a hit. I made it with roasted baby potatoes, parsnip and carrots, also i made roasted asparagus with Parmesan cheese. The pork was very tender and it cook less then 30 minutes since i used a convection oven. I did use a probe and set it for 140 since i like my pork med well. I like to eat a lot of pork loin and this is a keeper. Thank you!

  84. Perfectly cooked Pork Tenderloin every time.

    Sear each side over medium high heat, 2 minutes a side (I use a cast iron skillet). Place skillet in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest on a serving plate (covered in tin foil) for 10 minutes before slicing. Do NOT skip the resting as the pork will continue to cook a bit throughout this process.

    Tenderloin will be ever so slightly pink, which is perfectly fine to eat no matter what the food safety nazi's will try to tell you. I got this cooking method from Ina Garten of Food Network. It has worked perfectly every time if followed properly.

    Maria, I look forward to trying your marinade and pan sauce as a change of pace as Ina's does not have a pan sauce and the marinade is different. Thanks for sharing!

  89. Made this for dinner today in the crock pot. I like my tenderloin about falling apart. I just poured the marinade mixture into the crock pot with the tenderloin (more than 3#) and let it cook for 4-5 hours. I would use a little less oil next time. But the flavors of the sauce were delicious different. I made a gravy of it. Fabulous!

    1. I have never tried it with pork chops so don't really know. If you do use the chops just adjust the times.

    1. Hmmm...don't know. My guess is that there isn't enough marinade.

  110. Great recipe great pork. I found the sauce to be a lil salty though. Could I cut down the soy sauce, or get maybe a low sodium broth? Other than that a perfect pork.

  111. The whole family LOVES this recipe, yes including all three kids! They always ask for it now. I bought the pork loins from Costco and made enough marinade to freeze one in the bag. Of course reserved the marinade for the first one, but forgot to reserve some and freeze for the 2nd. I guess next time I could do this in a separate container or baggy. Do you think once defrosted I could use some of the marinade for the sauce even though it has been sitting with the meat?

    1. I think so as long as it is cooked long enough....or maybe just use wine and broth for the sauce?

  113. just bumped into this recipe, and it looks good, but one question.
    is the oil included in the marinade recipe or is it for searing the meat?

  114. In the oven now, can't wait to try it after reading all these rave reviews!

  115. Hello, I have a couple questions for you. When you sear the tenderloin do you use any butter or oil? And also, do you reserve the pan sauce and pour it on after cooking? Wasn't sure if it was supposed to be added during cooking. Thank you!!!

    1. You can add a pat of butter to help sear the meat. As for the pan sauce, see instructions for that in the recipe. Enjoy!

  118. I'm going to make this for a dinner get together with my neighbors. I was wondering if it would be ok to through in baby potatoes with the roast while it cooks? Do you think it will affect the cooking time too much?

    1. Potatoes sound like a yummy addition. You might want to par-boil the potatoes. If they are done before the pork just pull those out. Enjoy!

  126. Have my meat marinating right now to make for the hubby when he gets back into town tomorrow night. He works in the oilfield two weeks at a time so I'm excited to have this ready for him when he gets in! I forgot to reserve part of the marinade, but hope it will be fine without. I plan to make it with potatoes and asparagus. Is it better to make potatoes separately or throw them in same pan as the meat to cook with juices? And any suggestions.for the asparagus?

    ReplyDelete
  127. Awww...what a nice thing to do for your hubby :)

    The potatoes can go with the pork but cook the asparagus seperate. I cook my on a lined sheet pan with a little olive oil, salt and pepper.

  137. Super Delicioso! Made this with a 4 lb tenderloin and tripled the marinade. It came out really great, smelled incredible. The pan sauce really makes the dish, the flavors are amazing. I could make a dinner out of the sauce and French bread alone! Thanks for the great recipe, my husband and kiddos loved it!

  138. Making this tonight! I had printed out the recipe and pinned it but remembered some comments about baking (or not baking) the tenderloin in the marinade. When I went back to my pin I too got the spam message. Fortunately I was able to "track you down" with Google and got the info I needed. Thought you'd want to know about the spam message. Just waiting for hubby to walk through the door and smell the amazing aromas in the house. Can't wait!!
