The 10 Best Pork Marinade Recipes
Jerk Pineapple Pork Chops
Spicy jerk seasonings are pureed with fresh pineapple for a lively mixture that does double duty: as both marinade and as sauce served on the side.
Mojo Pork Kebabs
Garlic lovers rejoice! This marinade is a riff on the classic Cuban mojo sauce and relies heavily on minced garlic tempered by citrus juices for its zesty signature flavor.
Soy-and-Ginger-Marinated Pork Chops
Sweet and simple, this marinade imparts an addictive, umami flavor using a stripped-down ingredient list. Just 15 minutes of prep (plus time for the marinade to work its magic) means it's definitely a recipe to put on mealtime repeat.
No-Waste Tangy Mustard Marinade
Put an almost-empty mustard jar to use by adding a few kitchen staples and shaking up a quick-and-easy marinade that compliments pork tenderloin, among other things.
Chipotle-Marinated Pork Tenderloin with Black Bean Salsa
A spicy, aromatics-laden paste is rubbed allover pork tenderloin before an overnight stint in the refrigerator --the end result is a tender cut laced with flavors that complement the side of smoky salsa.
Grilled Pork Chops with Spice Paste
Made with pantry staples -- brown sugar, garlic, vegetable oil, and spices -- this marinade is easy to put together and adds mighty flavor.
Red Onion, Pork, and Pineapple with Sriracha-Pineapple Marinade
Another double-duty marinade: this one doubles as a glaze. Pineapple juice not only sweetens and tenderizes the pork, the natural sugars in the juice also crisp up into delicious caramelized bits when brushed on during cooking.
Pork Kebabs With Roasted Squash And Sauteed Greens
Cubed tenderloin gets a fast, flavorful infusion from a simple lemon vinaigrette.
Pork and balsamic vinegar are a complementary pairing that's become a classic -- fragrant rosemary lends the tangy combo an earthy note.
Garlicky Pork Ribs With Greens
An oregano-laced marinade flavors these meaty country-style ribs, which finish cooking placed on top of collard greens -- meaning their flavorful drippings are soaked up by the wintry greens.
