Asian Marinated Pork Tenderloin

  • Prep time 15 mins
  • Cook time 22 mins

Borrowing some flavours from Asia, we end up with a wonderfully flavoured sweet and caramelized roast. Just a little bit of extra work, that is well worth the time!



  1. Remove any excess fat and silver skin from the tenderloin and set aside for now.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine molasses, lemon zest and juice, soy sauce, oil, ginger, shallots and cayenne.  Give a good stir to evenly distribute everything.
  3. Transfer the tenderloin to a storage container and then pour the marinade on top.  Make sure to coat the whole tenderloin, turning in the marinade a couple times.
  4. Marinate for up to 6 hours.  You could cook the roast immediately if you do not have time to marinate and it will turn out great, however a few hours in the marinade makes it that much better.
  5. Once you are ready, roast the tenderloin in a preheated 375° F oven (or toaster oven).  Cook until the roast reaches your desired doneness.  I like my pork tenderloin cooked to medium and that takes about 20 minutes.
  6. Allow the roast to rest for at least 6 minutes in a warm place, then slice and serve!


  • Use this marinade for any cut of chicken or beef as well as pork.
