|Reduced-sodium soy sauce||2 tablespoons|
|White wine vinegar||1 tablespoon|
|Olive oil||1 tablespoon|
|Orange juice||½ tablespoon|
|Garlic clove, minced||1|
|Pork tenderloin, visible fat removed||¾ pound|
- Whisk together soy sauce, honey, vinegar, oil, orange juice, and garlic in a small bowl. Pour half of the marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Reserve the other half the marinade to serve as a dressing with the cooked tenderloin.
- Place pork in the bag and toss around until it is thoroughly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 ½ to 2 hours, turning at least once. Remove from the refrigerator 20-30 minutes before grilling.
- Prepare indoor or outdoor grill. Grill the tenderloin for 20-25 minutes, turning often, until a meat-thermometer registers 150°F. Let rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
- Pour the remaining marinade over the sliced pork and serve.
