Pork Tenderloin Balsamico

Servings 4 people


  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate pork tenderloin for 15 minutes (see recipe).
  • Place tenderloin in a large zipper-topped plastic bag. In a small bowl, whisk together next 5 ingredients (garlic through black pepper); pour mixture over the tenderloin.
  • Seal the bag and turn to coat pork completely; marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. At the time of cooking, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Remove tenderloin from marinade; pat dry to remove excess marinade. In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil until hot. Add tenderloin and sear on all sides until golden-crusted.
  • Transfer to a baking pan; roast for 30 minutes or until cooked through. Place tenderloin on a cutting board and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
