  • 1-2 pounds pork tenderloin


  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled

Savory Pan Sauce

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons reserved marinade


  • Squeeze the juice from the lemon. Place the juice and all other marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  • Pour marinade over pork tenderloin and marinate in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours
  • When you're ready to cook, preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, remove tenderloin from marinade and sear 2-3 minutes on each side. (Do not discard marinade)
  • Place tenderloin in baking dish, uncovered, in the oven and cook for 30-40 minutes. The internal temperature should be 145 degrees.
  • In the skillet where you browned the meat, add the chicken broth and 3 tbsp of marinade. (The rest of the marinade can now be discarded)
  • While it heats, use a spatula to scrape of any remaining browned pieces of meat from the skillet. Bring to a boil.
  • Boil for 3-4 minutes until reduced to a thicker sauce.
  • Remove from heat and add butter, and stir until melted and combined
  • Slice tenderloin against the grain and serve with sauce poured over it or on the side.
