Marinated Pork Fillet à la Jacques

A delicious recipe from Jacques, my hairdresser on Crescent Street.

2 servings
Marinade 8 h
Preparation 5 min

Cooking 20 min

160 calories per serving 


1/4 cup soy sauce, low-sodium   65 mL
1 tbsp gingerroot, grated   14 g
1 clove garlic, minced    
1 pork tenderloin   300 g
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard   2.5 mL
1/3 cup orange juice   85 mL

Before you start

The tenderloins can be cooked using either a broiler in the oven or an outdoor grill.



  1. In a plastic bag, add all the ingredients of the marinade: soy sauce, grated ginger and minced garlic. Mix well, then add the pork tenderloins, turning them to coat well. Close the bag tightly. Chill in a refrigerator overnight or up to 24 h.

Broil or outdoor grill

  1. Preheat the broiler. Drain the tenderloins and put them on the rack of a broiler pan, under the broiler 10 cm from the heat for about 8 min per side. In a small bowl, mix the mustard with the orange juice. Use this mixture to brush the tenderloins half-way through the cooking.
  2. Alternatively, on an outdoor grill, drain the tenderloins and place them on a very hot grill. Cook for about 15-20 min, depending on their size, brushing them with the orange and mustard mixture.
  3. Serve.
