5 ingredient marinade
The perfect marinade for your next pork dish
We eat pork probably about once a week, and are always searching for the perfect pork marinade. I need something that is quick to put together, and yet packs a flavorful punch. This simple mix uses pantry and refrigerator staples, that when combined together make for a delicious soak for your pork dinner!
While I use tenderloin tips, you can use any cut of pork you prefer. Even though this is a pork marinade recipe, it’s also delicious on steak and chicken as well. The next time we head to Costco, I’m planning on picking up some extra Salmon to test my hypothesis of this being the best 5 ingredient marinade ever. I’m guessing the answer will be yes, but I’ll keep you updated.
- 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper (optional)
- In a large resealable plastic bag, add the pork tenderloin and combine the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and minced garlic.
- Seal the bag and massage ingredients into the pork.
- Place in the refrigerator overnight, making sure to flip about halfway through (you don’t need to leave it in a full 10+ hours. 6 is fine, but the longer it marinates, the better it is!).
- Discard the marinade and cook over a stovetop or on the grill over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side (or until pork reaches a safe temperature of 145°).
- Don't have balsamic vinegar? Balsamic vinaigrette works just as well!
- This is also a great marinade for chicken, salmon, etc!
