Korean-Style Marinated Pork Tenderloin Fast2eat

Korean-Style Marinated Pork Tenderloin Fast2eat

A Korean inspired recipe of marinated pork tenderloin. Easy, quick and delicious.

This Pork Tenderloin is marinated in a sweet and savoury Korean sauce containing soy sauce, Sesame oil, garlic, and Brown sugar.

It is as good as it looks – tender with lots of flavours! And super easy.

I love how tender the meat is but also how full of flavour the marinade tastes.

If you like Korean food flavours, you’ll love this recipe!

Let me just say that this is some delicious and tender meat, literally melts in your mouth. 

Very flavourful, one of my favourites for pork tenderloin!

A Korean inspired recipe of marinated pork tenderloin. Easy, quick and delicious.
Servings: 12 people


  • 4 Pork tenderloin - about 450g/1Lb each


  • ½ cup Water - boiling
  • 1 tsp Beef stock mix - instant
  • ½ cup Soy sauce - preferably low sodium
  • 2 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Garlic - minced
  • 2 Onion - or 4 Scallions - sliced
  • 2 tbsp Sesame oil
  • Black pepper - optional to taste

Pork Sautéing

  • 1-2 tbsp Oil

Instacart is available in the US only at the moment.



  • In a non-reactive container large enough to hold the pork tenderloins, combine boiling water with the instant Beef stock mix, then add the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, onions (or scallions), sesame oil, and pepper to make a marinade.


  • Trim all fat and silverskin from the tenderloins.
  • Add the tenderloins to the marinade, turning them, so they are coated on all sides. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Or at least for 4 hours, The longer your meat sits in the marinade, the better.


  • Remove the tenderloins from the marinade.
  • Heat the oil in a sauté pan over moderately high heat.
  • Brown the meat lightly on all sides. Keep in mind the sugar in the marinade can burn easily, so watch the meat carefully as it browns.
  • Now the trick is not to touch it for a couple of minutes because you want the meat to start browning, almost to the point that it looks charred. Then you can flip it over and cook on the other side for another 3 minutes or so and you’re good to go.

Oven Roasting

  • Place the pan in a preheated 425°F (220°C) oven for about 15 minutes, or until a meat thermometer indicates an interior temperature of 150°F (66°C) or desired doneness.
  • Of course, oven temps vary from oven-to-oven, so make sure you check it with a meat thermometer at 15 minutes and improvise from there.
  • Remove the tenderloins from the oven.
  • Let stand 10 minutes in a warm place, then slice across into medallions.
