Asian Pork Tenderloin

6 Mar

I saw this recipe on – a frequent online haunt of mine. I knew as soon as I saw it that I would try it and love it. Not only that, I knew it would win over my boyfriend, too, even though he doesn’t care for pork roast or pork tenderloin (I know…..shocking!).

This recipe is super flexible in how spicy you want to make it. I enjoy that because sometimes I want it a little hotter to taste.

Simple ingredients - also included, the pork roast!

Go ahead and marinate!



The pork is always juicy and delicious. It is easy to put together – and you let it marinate overnight (or at least for 8 hours). It’s the ultimate crowd-pleaser.

Asian Marinated Pork and Tarragon Sauteed Mushrooms

Asian Pork Tenderloin

  • 1/3 cup lite soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 2  tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3  green onions, chopped
  • 4  cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1  1/2 tablespoons Asian chile paste
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1   (2 pound) fat-trimmed pork tenderloin


  1. Pour into a medium bowl the soy sauce, sesame oil, and Worcestershire sauce. Then whisk in brown sugar, green onions, garlic, chile paste, and pepper. Place the tenderloin in a shallow dish. Pour sauce over tenderloin, turning the meat a few times to coat. Cover dish, and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Transfer pork with marinade into an aluminum foil-lined baking pan.
  3. Roast in a preheated oven 25 to 30 minutes. Remove, and let stand 5 to 10 minutes before carving.
