The marinade makes a delicious salad dressing, too. A single batch makes 3/4 cup total; use it with pork chops one night, then over a green salad for lunch.
1/2 cup Smart Balance® Omega™ Oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves, crushed
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (1 lb) pork tenderloin, trimmed
Smart Balance® Cooking Spray
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
Combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk.
Place the pork in a large zip-top plastic bag, add 1/3 cup of the marinade, and seal. Refrigerate remaining marinade for later use. Toss bag gently to coat. Refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours,
Remove pork from marinade; discard marinade. If desired for appearance, tie kitchen string around tenderloin in about 3 spots. Grill whole tenderloin over medium-high heat, or roast in 450 degree oven, for 15 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into thickest part of tenderloin reaches 145 degrees. Remove from heat and let rest 5 minutes. Sprinkle pork with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Cut into slices and serve.
