How to make it
- Combine all marinade ingredients well.
- Place the tenderloins in a large zipper bag and add HALF of the marinade to the bag.
- Squish around to combine/coat. :)
- Let rest 1-4 hours in fridge.
- Remove tenderloins from bag and lay them out, opened. Reserve marinade from bag.
- Layer with basil, cheese, tomatoes and red onion slices.
- Roll up and tie or secure with toothpicks.
- Put on a roasting pan(or a deep baking sheet fitted with a cooling rack)
- Roast in a 450 oven for about 20 minutes, until internal temperature is at least 140 but NO MORE than 155(we cook ours to no more than 150 and eat it at about 155. Pork is safe to eat at 145 but will begin to dry out at 160)
- Meanwhile, pour all marinade from the reserved and the bag, into a heavy sauce pan.
- Bring to a boil and reduce by about 1/2
- Slice pork and serve with the reduction.
