Diva Tasting: Pork Loin and Dessert…

Pork Tenderloin

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


Step 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 6 to 8 hours.

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

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

Step 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 10-20 minutes.

Step 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. You could use thick cut pork chops as well. Serve with herb mash potatoes and roasted vegetables. Serves 4
