Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

On my blog I tend to post a lot of dessert and snack recipes (#becausechocolate ) but I do want to incorporate more main dishes for you all to try. When a sweet, sweet friend shared her Teriyaki Pork recipe with me a few weeks ago it was so dang good I couldn’t wait to tweak it just a little to make it “clean” and share it with you all!

We buy the 4 pack of small pork tenderloins from Costco and then I just split them up and freeze them individually. One of these is the perfect size for our family of four although there is plenty of marinade to do a larger roast. Both times I’ve made this recipe I’ve literally taken the frozen tenderloin out at 9am, mixed up the marinade, added it to the freezer bag and placed it all in cold water or the fridge until 11am when I popped it in the oven for an hour and both times its come out SO tender!

Recipe Notes

While meat is cooking for the final 30 minutes you can continually base the roast with the extra marinade for even more flavour. 

If you plan to serve the remaining marinade with the roast I always recommend boiling the liquid first just to be safe.
