Top 10 Pork Marinade Recipes

Most Popular and Best Pork Marinade Recipes


Pork is a meat that can always benefit from a good marinade. I generally recommend reducing the salt content of marinades used with pork to prevent a curing effect that can leave some cuts with a ham like texture. When marinating pork, remember that the thickness of the meat (not the bone) determines how long to marinate.

1. Pineapple Marinade

This sweet, fruity marinade works great on any cut of pork or chicken. What you get with this marinade is a great Hawaiian Teriyaki flavor. Try this marinade when you are simply placing cut strips of pork or chicken over rice. You can make extra marinade to use as a sauce as long as you keep it separate from the meat.

2. Pork Chop Marinade

This is a great Asian style marinade that works well on all cuts of pork, particularly pork chops. Reminiscent of a Teriyaki marinade with a hint of heat from the chili sauce. You can, if you like, heat this up with some extra chili sauce or perhaps a pinch of cayenne.

3. Jamaican Jerk Marinade

You've heard of Jerk seasonings and Jerk rubs, well this is a jerk marinade that gets that great jerk flavor deep into the meat. You can use this marinade on all kinds of meat and poultry.

4. Pork Rib Marinade

BBQ Guru posted this marinade recipe to the forum. It uses a pork rub for the seasoning with vinegar and water to turn it into a marinade.

5. Teriyaki Marinade

Want to get that great Teriyaki flavor into your favorite dish? This marinade is sure to add flavor to whatever you're grilling. This marinade works particularly well with pork and poultry.

6. Pork Chop and Tenderloin Marinade

Doug Freeman sent in this marinade recipe for grilled pork. You may leave out the liquid smoke if you are so inclined.

7. Bourbon Marinade

This is a great, sweet bourbon marinade that works perfectly on any foods. This is a mild marinade so you will want several hours marinating time with it before you grill.

8. Boston Butt Injection Marinade

This marinade works well for injecting pork roasts that will be smoked and pulled. Make sure you grind the herbs and spices well so it won't clog the injection needle.

9. Mustard-Vinegar Marinade

This is a simple mustard marinade that tenderizes and adds flavor. It works well on pork or poultry.

10. Carne Asada Marinade

While Carne Asada usually means beef, this marinade works just as well on chicken or pork. If you want to put together a delicious Mexican dish, then this is a great marinade to start with.
