My Go-To Pork Tenderloin Marinade

  • Author: Brittany Dixon


This pork tenderloin marinade is a savory blend of olive oil, herbs, mustard, and garlic with a hint of sweetness from honey. It can be grilled or baked for an easy, family-pleasing dinner!



1/3 c olive oil

3 Tbsp honey

2 tsp mustard

3 Tbsp soy sauce

1 lemon, juiced

1 Tbsp dried parsley

1 Tbsp dried Thyme

1 tsp salt

3 garlic cloves, minced


Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl. Pour over pork (I use a gallon ziplock) and marinate for at least 1 hour and up to 10 hours.

When ready to cook, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove from marinade and sear all sides in a cast iron, about 1-2 minutes per side.

Move cast iron pan into the oven until internal temperature of pork reaches 145 degrees. This can take 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your tenderloin. Let rest for 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
