A simple marinade is they key to juicy pork tenderloin. This ginger-orange pork tenderloin has a marinade with Asian inspired flavors that will spice up your weeknight dinner!



For the marinade:

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos*
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger

For the pork tenderloin:

  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 2 one-pound tenderloin


  1. Trim the surface fat from the pork tenderloin and place pork in a large plastic bag.
  2. Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl, stir to combine. Add marinade to bag. Place in the fridge overnight if possible, but for at least one hour.
  3. Place a large oven safe skillet (I use my 12 inch Lodge cast iron) in the oven and preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  4. While the pan is heating, remove the tenderloin from the marinade and pat dry. Season the pork with salt and pepper.
  5. Using oven mitts, remove the pan from the oven and add the oil. Add the pork to the skillet and return it to the oven roast for 10 minutes.
  6. Flip the pork, reduce the heat to 400 degrees, and roast for an additional 15 minutes. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the tenderloin; the internal temperature should read 145 degrees. Continue roasting if the temperature has not reached 145 degrees.
  7. Remove from the oven and transfer meat to a cutting board to rest. Let meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing.


Coconut aminos can easily be swapped for soy sauce or tamari. I use coconut aminos because of my gluten intolerance, but feel free to switch if you are not avoiding gluten.
