This is a delicious & healthy recipe that takes about 10 minutes to prep... what more could you want from a dinner!?
from: mi madre
time: 10 minutes prep; 1-8 hours marinate; 45 minutes bake
2 lb. pork tenderloin
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 med. onion, minced
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. basil
1 1/2 tsp. parsley
3 T. soy sauce
1 T. vegetable oil
Combine all ingredients (except pork) in a food processor or blender. Pour mixture over pork. Marinate 1-8 hours in a ziplock bag, turning occasionally. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook 30-45 minutes or until meat thermometer reaches 160-170.
Downside - 2 lbs of pork tenderloin costs about $10 unless it's on sale...
Upside - it makes a lot of food; we eat it for lunch and dinner several days in a row; it's tasty reheated; you can always buy 1 lb. and cut the ingredients in half :)
