Chinese Pork Tenderloin

This was a great recipe that we served when our friends Larry and Florence came to visit. It was an easy marinade and tasted great. Will make this again!
Chinese Pork Tenderloin
Posted by Gaudrey_GA

4 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons orange juice
3 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons oil (I use olive oil)
4 tablespoons honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 pork tenderloins (1 1/2 to 2 pounds each)

Mix all ingredients except pork tenderloins in a bowl. Mix well. Put tenderloins in a Ziploc bag. Pour marinade over all. Marinate 3 hours, turning every 30 minutes or marinate overnight. Remove meat from the marinade. Put on a rack in a roasting pan. * Bake at 400° for 20 minutes. Brush on all sides with the marinade. Turn meat over and bake 20 minutes more. Let stand at least 10 to 20 minutes before slicing. Cut into slices and serve with Plum Sauce and Chinese hot mustard.

*I cooked the tenderloins without a rack and with the marinade. I used the cooked juice/marinade for a sauce over the pork when serving.


  1. This is a great looking tenderloin. One of my favorite dishes! I'd love it if you would share this post on my Southern Sundays linky party on Sunday.

    Hope to see you there!
