Best Balsamic Marinated Pork Tenderloin


Balsamic marinated pork tenderloin with garlic, rosemary, and honey. I found this recipe a few years ago and it is indeed a keeper. Enjoy.

  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • fine sea salt to taste

  • freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 1 (1 pound) pork tenderloin


  1. Whisk balsamic vinegar, garlic, rosemary, honey, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Place pork in a resealable plastic bag and pour balsamic mixture on top to coat. Squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Place the bag in a container to avoid leaks, and marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.

  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  3. Remove pork from the marinade and shake off excess. Place pork in a roasting pan or baking dish. Reserve marinade.

  4. Roast pork in the preheated oven until slightly pink in the center, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Remove pork from the oven, place on a cutting board, and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let rest for 10 to 20 minutes.

  5. While pork is resting, pour marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve with the roasted tenderloin.
