Marinated Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches Recipe

Marinated Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches Recipe

Every January, we host a family get-together to watch "the big game" on TV. I'm not much of a football fan, but I do enjoy that annual opportunity to try out new recipes. These tasty finger sandwiches scored a "touchdown" with everyone who tried them! If you don't want to miss a play, you can prepare this appetizer ahead and heat it up at halftime.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 12 dinner rolls, warmed

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, ginger, mustard and garlic. Pour 3/4 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 12 hours or overnight; turning several times. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill, pork, uncovered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Baste with remaining marinade during the last 7 minutes of cooking.
