Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

I got this recipe from allrecipes.com!  It’s easy to make, and the pork comes out really flavorful!  I used this recipe for two occasions- to make sandwiches and to serve as an entree at a potluck.  I modified the recipe by using one pork tenderloin from Fresh & Easy, halving the marinade, and slicing the pork before marinating.  I squeezed the pork in the baking pan so it would fit in one layer.  This made the pork stick together during baking, and it was a great size for sandwiches!  The second time I made the pork, I followed the recipe and used two tenderloins.  I sliced each tenderloin in half and marinated it for 8 hours before placing it in the baking pan.  I didn’t slice the rest of it until it was ready to serve.

Ingredients:

5 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
2 (1 pound) pork tenderloins

Directions:

1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients and then add the pork.  Seal the bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
2. Drain and discard marinade.  Place the tenderloins in an 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.  Bake uncovered at 425° F for 25-35 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160° F.
3. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.  Serve with pan drippings.
