  • 1 lb pork tenderloin, excess fat trimmed
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 7 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp grated fresh garlic
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • olive oil for cooking
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  • Combine ginger, honey, lemon juice, garlic, soy sauce, cayenne, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl.
  • Add half the marinade ingredients to a large ziplock bag and add pork tenderloin.  Seal bag and marinate for a few hours or overnight.  Pour leftover marinade into an airtight container and keep refrigerated until ready to roast the pork.
  • Line a baking sheet or baking dish with a double layer of aluminum foil and set aside.  Remove leftover marinade container from the refrigerator and preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  • Heat a large skillet with a bit of olive oil over MED-HIGH heat, remove excess marinade and sear pork tenderloin very briefly on all sides until lightly golden brown.
  • Transfer tenderloin to prepared baking sheet/dish and roast for 10-15 minutes, until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the tenderloin registers 133 F degrees.
  • Brush with leftover marinade and broil on HIGH for 1-2 minutes until golden.  Remove from oven, cover with foil and let rest a few minutes.  Pork will continue carry-over cooking and should end up between 140-145 F degrees with a blush of pink.
  • Brush marinade over the top of pork tenderloin and sprinkle with parsley if desired.
    Slice into 1/2 inch thick slices and serve.



Prep time does not include marinating time, as this will vary from individual to individual.
