Soy Sauce, Dijon, Garlic and Rosemary Marinade for Pork Tenderloin (or Chicken)

"This is my new favorite marinade, is it on the blog?" Words to warm a mother's heart:@) Marinades that start with soy sauce always have big flavor, add in mustard, garlic and rosemary ~and~ a nice char from the grill... Oh Momma, this was great! I let mine marinate for over 5 hours, I see no problem letting it go longer. The only thing I did differently was, instead of adding slices of garlic into the meat, I minced it and added it to the marinade.
Important note to self: Always oil your grill grates well.
I've added the chicken label, I think this marinade would be great with that too.

Soy Sauce, Dijon, Garlic and Rosemary Marinade-adapted from Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms
1/4 C soy sauce
2 fat garlic cloves, minced-the original calls for 4 cloves, sliced and inserted into the meat
2 Tblsp whole grain Dijon mustard
4 Tblsp honey
2 Tblsp orange juice
1 Tblsp fresh rosemary, minced
freshly ground black pepper
3 Tblsp olive oil
1 pkg pork tenderloins (2 tenderloins, about 2-1.5 lbs)
  1. Mix everything except pork in large zip top bag (I smoosh it around with my hand). 
  2. Add pork and let marinate in fridge for at least 5 hours, flipping often.
  3. Put bag of pork on counter while grill heats up.
  4. Grill over medium/high heat with lid closed, for 4 minutes per side (think of the tenderloin as being square, flip it four times).
  5. Place on cutting board, cover with foil, let rest about 10 minutes, slice and enjoy!
Eat well and have a happy day:@)


  1. i like how your boys support your blog and recipe love. :)

  2. Oh rosemary, brilliant!! Passing along to my grillmaster :)

  3. I love these flavors and with pork...amazing!

  4. Oh my Lynn, this marinade does sound so flavorful. Before you mentioned that it would be good for chicken, I had it in my mind that I would try that because I always have chicken breasts in the freezer. Thanks for a great idea to use on the grill!

  5. I really must get some of that lemon bow tie pasta! I did make some zoodles the other night with a vegetable peeler that makes julienne strips. They were good!

  6. We would love your marinade Lynn! I have a hedge of rosemary that needs a serious trim too :)


Thank you for stopping by!
