Another easy Pork Tenderloin Recipe! This calls for indirect grilling but I just baked it in a pan for the oven. I needed a no fuss dinner today.

I added some mustard seed 🙂


1lb pork tenderloin
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
2 cloves minced garlic
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
Balsamic Glaze (recipe follows)

Directions. Place pork in a large plastic bag. Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, oil, rosemary, garlic, pepper and salt. Pour into the bag with the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat pork. Leave marinate in the fridge for about an hour or until ready to cook.
Preheat oven to 350F
Remove pork from the marinade and discard leftovers. Place tenderloin in baking dish lined with foil. Cover with foil and cook for about an 45 minutes. Uncover the pork and brush pork with the balsamic glaze. Bake for another fifteen minutes or less till the temp of the pork reaches 155F.Let stand for fifteen minutes then cut.  Garnish with some fresh thyme.
