Comments Off on DINNER: ROASTED PORK LOIN


Serves 4-6


1      2 lb. pork tenderloins




1/2    cup soy sauce

1/2    cup white wine

1/4    cup olive oil

1/4   cup brown sugar

4        garlic cloves, finely chopped

1/2   cup white fresh onion, finely chopped

1       tsp ground cinnamon


1       tbsp cornstarch

2       tbsp water





1. Trim all the fat from the pork tenderloins and set aside.


2. Place the soy sauce, white wine, olive oil, brown sugar, garlic, onion and cinnamon in a large resealable bag and mix well.
    Add the pork tenderloins, seal,  mix well and store in the refrigerator for at least 4 to 6  hours, longer the better.


3. Preheat oven at 375ºF .


4. Take out the pork tenderloins from the bag and reserve the marinade. Sear them on both sides in a large pan over medium high heat, for about 4 minutes per side. Then, place them in a roasting pan covered with aluminum foil and roast them in the oven for about 25-30 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat reaches 150ºF  – 155ºF . Let the pork rest for about 15 minutes before slicing.


5. While the pork is roasting, bring the reserved marinade to a boil in a small sauce pan and simmer for about 5-10 minutes on low heat. During the last minute or so, dissolve the cornstarch in the 2 tbsp of water and add it to the marinade. Stir until it thickens and serve along with the pork.
