Maple Glazed Pork Tenderloin
Sweet and a little bit salty, this glaze is perfect for any occasion and also goes well with chicken or added to BBQ sauce for yummy ribs.
2 lb pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat
1/4 cup pure maple syrup + 2 TB for glazing
1 TB soy sauce
3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
2 TB grapeseed or extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp sea salt
Freshly ground pepper
Combine marinade ingredients (keep back the extra 2 TB of syrup) and whisk together in small bowl. Cover pork tenderloin with marinade and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Preheat oven to 400°F or heat grill to medium high heat. Remove tenderloin from marinade (discard marinade.) Place in roasting pan or directly on grill, brush with remaining maple syrup, and cook uncovered for approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Flip tenderloin over and cook for another 10 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 150 ˚F at the thickest portion of the loin. Remove from oven, wrap loosely in tinfoil, and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Slice into medallions.
