Marinated Pork Tenderloin ~ perfect for easy & elegant dinners

Whole Oven Roasted Thai Marinated Pork Tenderloin ~ Getting pre-marinated pork tenderloin at the market takes all the hassle out of making this tender & low fat cut of meat.  There are many different marinated flavors to choose from ~ the hardest part is trying to decide what flavor you'd like to try.  :)

For an easy dinner that's simple to prepare, yet nice enough for company, I often turn to marinated pork tenderloins.  I purchase the pre-marinated ones at the store, but you could easily marinate it at home.  I like the convenience of having it already done for me, just one less thing to have to worry about on a busy night.  Sometimes I roast the entire tenderloin in the oven.  If I'm roasting it, I just follow the simple directions on the package for getting the tenderloin into the oven & in about the time it takes me to get all the side dishes ready, maybe help out with homework & maybe have a cup of tea ~ dinner is about ready to get on the table.  It's all pretty low-key, but it tastes like you went to a lot of trouble ~ I like it when something easy makes me look so good!  heehee

BBQ Mesquite Marinated Pork Tenderloin Medallions ~ I slice the raw tenderloin into 'medallions' for even quicker cooking.  Since they're sliced thin, it takes just a few minutes to cook.  If you have any leftover rice, combine it with some frozen mixed veg & you've got a simple side dish, add another veg & dinner is served.

Sometimes I slice the raw tenderloin into 'medallions' when I want dinner on the table even quicker.  I'll either cook them on the George Foreman Grill, or saute them in a skillet.  Dress it up for an elegant dinner or keep it simple for a weeknight meal, it's all good!  Any leftovers are perfect served the next day, either in ~ sandwiches at lunchtime or as a stir fry for dinner.  Not only is this a really easy cut of meat to cook (you can even grill it on the BBQ), it's tasty & really low in fat ~ no wonder I like this cut of meat so much!   :)

Leftover Pork Stir Fry ~ Grab some leftover marinated pork tenderloin, cut it into cubes & stir fry it with your favorite stir fry sauce, veggies and maybe even some chunks of tropical fruit.  Then serve it over rice & sprinkle with some nuts.  A quick & simple dinner for any night of the week.
