Orange and Rosemary Pork Tenderloin

Orange and Rosemary Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Orange and Rosemary Pork Tenderloin is the perfect thing to serve when entertaining a crowd. The marinade becomes the sauce and comes together in no time.

If you have been to dinner at my house sometime in the last 10 years or so, there is a very good chance that I have made this pork tenderloin for you.

I love this pork tenderloin because it is the easiest thing to put together and it is delicious. The orange, rosemary, and ginger give it so much flavor and the effort is minimal. It is perfect for a weeknight dinner, but also perfect for a barbecue or a dinner party.

You can dress this up or dress it down. To dress it up, make some mashed potatoes and asparagus. To dress it down, serve it on a bed of salad greens.

You can easily double or triple it to feed more people. I like serving pork tenderloin at a party, not only do I like to eat it, it takes 15 minutes to cook, and is less expensive than beef. The other thing that I love is that the marinade becomes the sauce. You mix together one marinade, but halve it, and serve the other half as a sauce. Brilliant.

    This is one of my favorite pork tenderloin recipes. The sauce is sweet and salty and tangy and herby. I make it in 2 separate half batches, one for the marinade and 1 for the sauce, because the author says to use separate portions for marinade ans sauce and I’m just that OCD about ingredient ratios, but realistically one could just marinate the pork in the entire batch and then boil the marinade to make the sauce. Also, 155F is over-cooked for lean pork in my book. I shoot for about 140F.
