It’s no secret that I am a fan of balsamic vinegar. Well, really almost any vinegar, but especially balsamic. So, I’ve played around with creating different marinades in the past, and the one I used for this pork is one of my very favorites. I’ve gotten inspiration from a number of sources, that used a variety of ingredients, and I played with them until I came up with one of my own. It goes great with pork, beef, fish (salmon), and chicken. So versatile and so freakin’ delicious!! I had some pork tenderloin in the freezer and I wanted to try a new flavor for it to add to my collection. This one is definitely a winner!! Next time I will try my Red Wine Vinegar marinade. If you are a fan of pork tenderloin and looking for a new sauce/marinade, you should definitely give this one a try!!
