  • 2 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • Place the pork tenderloin in a bowl or resealable gallon sized bag.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the olive oil, honey, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, lemon zest, lemon juice, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper and garlic.
  • Pour the marinade over the meat. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours.
