Honey Soy-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

This recipe is dedicated to anyone – everyone! – who feels that a flavorful, tender, juicy, main course meat is out of reach. Let it be known: it is not out of reach! This pork tenderloin recipe simply cannot get any easier.

It also can’t get much more delicious.

Pork tenderloin, being a more expensive cut of meat than pork chops, is something we don’t enjoy too often. The recipe in which I most often use pork tenderloin is Korean pork lettuce wraps, in which the tenderloin is sliced into medallions and cooked quickly. I very rarely bake a full tenderloin, but I was ready for a change this time around. I went in search of a tenderloin recipe in which I already had all other ingredients on hand. Chances are, you do too.

The outer layer of this tenderloin is slightly crispy; it’s the epitome of sweet, salty, caramelized goodness. It’s so good, two people can easily go through an entire tenderloin in one meal. This will be a go-to pork recipe for me in the future.

I served this with broccoli-cheese rice and fresh veggies. Enjoy!

Honey Soy-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

1 pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/3 C honey
2 TBS soy sauce
1 TBS sesame oil
1 TBS brown sugar
2 TBS balsamic vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 450.

2. In a bowl, mix honey, soy sauce, oil, sugar and vinegar.

3. Place tenderloin in a roasting pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and, using a turkey baster or pastry brush, spread a bit of the sauce over the pork. Bake for another 45 minutes, basting every 15 minutes with additional sauce.
