  • Remove the tenderloin from the oven, cover with aluminum foil, and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • Carve diagonal slices and serve with green salad.

  • Place the bag in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, remove pork from the bag, and discard the marinade.
