Grecian Pork Tenderloin Recipe
This zesty marinade makes tenderloins even more tender than they already are. Olive oil, garlic, fresh lime juice, and oregano coat the meat, sealed in a plastic bag for a few hours before grilling.
Bar none, this is one of the tastiest ways to prepare pork tenderloin I have ever tried. I accidentally forgot to add the oregano, and it was STILL just great. Next time, of course, I will try to remember the oregano! Per some of the other reviews, I halved all the marinade ingredients and had plenty for 2 tenderloins. I used fresh lemon juice to make it "authentic" Greek, rather than lime juice, minced about 1/3 of the garlic for the marinade & made slits in the tenderloins & inserted the garlic slices. We cooked it on our gas grill over indirect heat for exactly 25 minutes (to 160 degrees), and it was superb! Thanks, Dave, for this keeper of a recipe.
Good recipe with a few modifications. Makes way too much marinade - cut it in half and there is still more than enough for two whole tenderloins. I used lemon juice and reduced the amount of oregano. Also added fresh ground pepper to the marinade. Roasted uncovered in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Use an oven thermometer to get it perfect. If it's overcooked it dries right out.
Excellent marinade for pork tenderloin - however I cut the amount of marinade in half and it was plenty for 2 pound of pork. I used lemon juice instead of lime about 1/2 cup and cut the salt back to 1/2 tsp. I used only 2 Tbsp. of oregano. I added 1/4 cup of low sodium soy sauce. I cut the pork into kabobs, put everything into a ziploc bag and let it marinate all day. It grilled up perfectly and tasted great!
Very good. I started it on the stove for 10 minutes, browning on all sides. Then put it in the oven with the remaining marinade at 400 degrees for 12 minutes, took it out and covered with foil and let it sit 10 more minutes. Sliced and spooned a bit of the marinade on. We had the Beet Salad by Robbie Haferkamp on this site and Orzo with Feta and Cherry Tomatoes from Epicurious.com. Yummy Greek dinner!
This is the easiest Greek-style pork you'll ever make. Just sprinkle a pork tenderloin with Greek seasoning, pour a jar of peperoncini peppers over it, and cook in a slow cooker. Great sliced and served on hoagie rolls.
This is a quick and tasty dish that will definitely impress your guests. They will think you spent all day preparing this! Greek olives and fresh rosemary give it a lot of flavor!
Absolutely delicious. I followed a tip and baked it in the oven for 40min on 400F. My husband couldn't stop talking about how delicious and moist it was. I've already started sharing this one with friends.
