Lemon Thyme- Garlic Marinade


Wanting a bite of summer today.  I pulled out a Ziploc bag of pork from the freezer that read “Lemon Thyme- Garlic Marinade” . It is one of the many marinades I whipped up at the end of summer when I was preserving my herb garden. This easy marinade is excellent for pork or chicken. Bon Appetit!

Ingredients :

  • 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of one lemon
  • zest of one lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 1⁄2 tbsp. thyme leaves
  • sea salt
  • black pepper

Permeation :Combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, 1/4  cup olive oil , garlic, thyme , and  sea salt and pepper  in a sturdy 1-gallon resealable plastic bag. Add the  pork tenderloins and turn to coat with the marinade. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag. Marinate the pork in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours but preferably overnight


I do not have a grilled pork tenderloin photo, as my family devoured dinner before I could snap one (real life moment!).
