How to make pork marinade with balsamic vinegar and brown sugar

Place the pork tenderloin in a gallon zip locked bag or airtight container and combine ingredients together and pour over the cut of meat.

This recipe requires a tangy marinade overnight as a brine for the pork.

It’s also delicious when marinating pork chops, lean pork roast and chicken breasts.

The flavors of tangy balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and Dijon mustard infuse the meat for a taste that is sweet and full of charbroiled flavor that is sealed in.

What is the best way to grill a pork tenderloin?

Grilling on medium low to medium heat will prevent burning the brown sugar and leave a caramelized crust to the meat.

Letting the meat rest after grilling helps redistribute and lock in the juices.

Serve this tenderloin with green beans or a sheet pan of roasted vegetables.

How long should I marinate a pork tenderloin?

The longer this marinade brines the meat the better. I will leave a pork tenderloin in the fridge overnight or for at least 8 hours. The end result is amazing flavor.
