Marinades are marvelous.  They are usually quite easy to mix together and once you do, the only thing left, is to wait.  Typically, the longer something marinates, the tastier, juicier and more delicious it is.  Our parents have a delicious, simple,  marinade that they use for pork fillet. Instead of keeping a piece of pork tenderloin whole, they slice it into thick-ish pieces, which means that there is more surface area for the marinade to cover.  This is a good thing.

Our parents usually choose to fry their marinated pork fillets, probably because of how delicious they are this way.  If you would prefer not to fry them, you can always grill them on the bbq or even bake them in the oven.  You’ll save a few calories and grams of fat to be sure, but maybe instead you can simply avoid dessert (at least for today).
