Lemon Garlic Herb Marinated Pork Tenderloin.
It’s what’s for dinner!
If you are a pork fan, like I am fast becoming, this marinated tenderloin is a MUST try!
It turns out tender and juicy with a fresh citrusy herb flavor that pairs great with potatoes and fresh vegetables for a delicious, easy weeknight dinner.
Prepare and marinade the meat the night before, then all you have to do is throw it on the grill for 10-15 minutes for dinner.
Leftovers are great sliced thinly for sandwiches or tossed in a stir-fry. Such a bonus to get a couple completely different meals from one easy recipe.
Hope you will give it a try, and hope you enjoy as much as we did.
