Chipotle-Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (86 votes)

A tenderloin is the ideal dinner for two: easy, fast and simple. And while this marinated tenderloin would be great as is with some grilled asparagus and corn on the cob, you can also transform it with the recipes that follow.

"I live in an apartment and don't have a grill so I baked mine in the oven. Most recipes call for the tenderloin to be seared in a skillet first, but we forget this step. We just baked it in a baking dish lined with aluminum foil at 375...

All I could taste was lime. No heat, nothing else.

All those fine ingredients wasted! No heat whatsoever from chipotle. All I could taste was lime after all that marinating, so it was like eating sour pork.


Kick-a$$! Just add a few more cloves of garlic...and yumm! I grilled individual cuts of tenderloin, it was soooo good! Eat it with grilled corn!

Yum yum

I marinated the tenderloin all night, and that really brought the flavor out in the meat. Since I don't have a grill or grill pan, I followed the advice of other reviewers and baked the tenderloin in the oven at 375 for one hour. It turned out perfect. I highly recommend the BBQ pork sandwich recipe that goes along with this--it was awesome!

Delicious flavor, simple to prepare
Great weeknight dinner

I used 1.5lb tenderloin with the same amount of marinade in this recipe. It seemed it was plenty of marinade for even one more tenderloin.
I didn't have fresh garlic so used the powder.
I read the previous comment and baked mine as well. I had to add 10 more minutes to the suggested time and baked for 45 minutes total. It was still not quite done for my preference. I would bake for 1 hour or grill next time.
Chipotle adds a great flavor but it was not very spicy.
I would make this again.
