Pork tenderloin is truly one of my favorite cuts of fresh pork. When cooked properly it is juicy, flavorful and so tender that it quite literally melts in your mouth.
The meat on its own is divine, but I’ve found that this marinade featuring maple syrup and garlic really brings the flavor of a pork tenderloin over the top. It also makes a wonderful sauce that tastes sweet but has a special kick!
As a mom, I also find that my kids really appreciate the texture of pork tenderloin. I have a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old, and getting them to eat meat can be a challenge due to tough textures.
This is no problem with pork tenderloin as it is so tender and juicy! Finding meal ideas that my entire family can appreciate is difficult but this delicious marinated pork tenderloin recipe really is quite perfect—and simple to prepare—which makes it an even bigger win.
