Marinated Pork Tenderloin in Soy and Rice Vinegar
Pork tenderloin tastes great when flavored with soy and rice vinegar.
Prep Time: 40M
Cooking Time: 20M
Serves: Serves 4
- 1 pork tenderloin, about 1lb (450g)
- 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 2in (5cm) piece of fresh ginger, finely chopped
- 5 scallions, finely sliced
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 4 tbsp soy sauce
- 4 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp honey
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Score the pork tenderloin all over in a crisscross pattern about 1/2in (1cm) deep, and place in a bowl or ceramic dish. Mix together the remaining ingredients, and season with sea salt and black pepper. Spread the mixture liberally over the pork, and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
- Heat the barbecue until it is hot and any flames have died down. Place the whole tenderloin on the barbecue, and grill over medium heat for 20 minutes, turning frequently. Remove to a plate, and leave to rest in a warm place for 10 minutes.
- To serve, cut the tenderloin into 1/4in (5mm) slices, and serve with an Asian-style salad.
