Juicy Pork Tenderloin Recipe Has Just 2 Ingredients (No Joke!)

An easy meal my family loves is pork tenderloin or turkey tenderloin. With just one additional ingredient, you'll have a dinner everyone will enjoy. With just two ingredients, this easy baked pork tenderloin recipe is a keeper!

I also love rubbing the tenderloin in a little olive oil and any premade rub. The particular one we love is from our local spice store called Old World Central Street Seasoning. After we barbecue, we serve it with homemade applesauce and a lightly cooked green vegetable and a grain. It’s one of our favorite budget-friendly meals in just a few minutes.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 2 hours to marinate
Cook Time: 30 minutes (approximately)
Total Time: 2 1/2 hours
Servings: 4


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Marinate the tenderloin in the Italian dressing for at least 2 hours. 
  2. Barbecue or bake it to the recommended temperature.

I love marinating meat in bottled Italian dressing. It's so easy! I've marinated country ribs, chicken and even flank steak in it. Will have to try it on pork tenderloin. Thanks for the easy recipe, Jan Mostrom !

Is it a smaller bottle of Italian dressing (8 oz) or the larger (16 oz)?
