Balsamic Marinaded Pork Loin

Balsamic Marinaded Pork Loin Served with Pesto Rice and Garlic Cheese Bread

Who is ready for another meat recipe? I know you all need some proteins to go along with the side dishes I have been sharing lately.

This balsamic marinaded pork loin is one of my favorite recipes. It calls for 4 ingredients, and takes hardly and work at all.

This is a marinade, so make sure you do this at least 1 hour in advance from you would like to cook. I will say, the longer it marinades, the better it tastes!


  • 1 pork loin
  • 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Place pork loin in an oven safe baking dish.
  • Cover pork with balsamic vinegar.
  • Make sure pork is well coated in the balsamic and season all sides with salt and pepper.
Pork Loin Marinading
  • Cover and set in fridge for 1-3 hours. (Remember, longer marinading time is better!)
  • When marinade is done or almost done, preheat oven to 400°
  • Cook for about 40 minutes, or until pork temperature is 165°
  • Take out of oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

I served mine with pesto rice (seriously, so good) and garlic cheese bread. Yum! Leftovers that we had were used for sandwiches the next day, and did not go to waste!
