Christmas Eve Dinner

I started marinating 8 pounds of pork tenderloin tonight. I figured three days in the frig and it should be good to go on Christmas Eve for dinner. I looked for a marinade recipe online but didn’t find anything I really liked so I created my own. I tried to keep things simple and so far the initial taste test has been good.

Garlic Basil Balsamic Marinade

1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
2 Tbls Minced Garlic
1 Tbls Spicy Mustard
6 Tbls Lightly Dried Basil (about .42 oz container)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper

Mix all ingredients in a food processor, pour over a 4lb roast and refrigerate for 24 to 72 hours. Vacuum seal marinated roast for a more infused flavor.
