World’s Best Pork Marinade

Have you all seen my World’s Best Steak Marinade recipe?  That has been my go-to all-time favorite recipe for any red meats for years now.  Having an incredible go-to recipe like that is awesome. I know each and every time that everyone will LOVE what I am cooking.  This recipe has worked out so well for me that I decided I needed to tweak it somehow and come up with something similar for pork.

World’s Best Pork Marinade

I was really striking out when cooking pork.  We tried a bunch of different recipes and none of them were hitting the mark for me or my family.

Pork Marinade

I decided that the flavor of my meat marinade is what makes us all LOVE it.  The combination of sugar, garlic, and soy sauce makes the most delicious decadent marinade.  This is exactly what I needed for pork. 

Let the tweaking begin.  I felt like I was running some sort of grand experiments in my kitchen.  I had all my tools, ingredients, and taste buds busy at work. Finally, after long hard, and exhausting taste testing 🙂 I have the recipe that I dreamed of for pork!

This recipe has the same exact appeal as the steak marinade.  It is a delicious combination of savory and sweet. 

Best Way To Marinade Pork

 Whisk up the ingredients in a bowl and then transfer the marinade with the pork into a sealable gallon bag. Then every hour or so go in and massage the meat in the bag so the marinade can soak into the meat even more. 

How Long Do You Marinade Pork 

You will want to marinate your pork for a minimum of one hour, but 5-6 hours is best. Or you can go all the way up to 12 hours in this marinade.

What Can You Use This Pork Marinade On 

Any type of pork you would like. Tenderloin, Butterfly Cut Chops, Regular bone-in or bone-out pork chops, and so on. This pork marinade recipe is versatile. You will find it provides an astonishing flavor to your pork that can’t be replicated by any store-brand bottle of marinade. 

What Does The Soy Sauce In Marinade Do 

The biggest thing is flavor, but you will also find that soy sauce somewhat brines the pork so that you have incredible flavor but also super juicy pork to serve up your family and friends. 

Can I Make This Marinade In Advance

Sure, you can prep this marinade the night before you plan to use it. Then when you are ready, toss in the pork and allow it to marinate the meat. Once you toss on the grill or place it in the oven, discard any leftover marinade you might have. 

Can You Baste Meat With Marinade 

This depends. If you leave some of the marinades out and placed them in a different container that doesn’t touch the raw pork, then yes. But, if you are planning to baste your pork with the leftover marinade that had your pork sitting in it, then no. The reason being is that has raw meat particles, and if you are basting meat, you are running a high chance of food poisoning. 

Give this pork marinade recipe a try today. We love it and have been using this same recipe for years.

You had mentioned brown sugar and honey. I don't see either one in your recipe? Is that something you can just add? Also are you using just white sugar for your recipe? So excited to try this and want it to be the best!!
