Why we love it:

The combination of maple syrup and soy sauce, with a few additions, is one of the most flavorful, satisfying, and super simple marinades which become sauces that I know! I love it over pork but see substitutions for ideas if you don’t cook or eat pork.


  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 14 cup Maple Syrup
  • 14 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 114 pounds Pork Tenderloin
  • 112 teaspoons Kosher Salt (divided)
  • 112 cups Basmati Rice (White)
  • 212 cups Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter (optional)
  • 1 package Edamame (frozen, I used in the shell)
  • 1 bunch Radish
  • 2 Green Onions (for garnish - but only if you have them, don’t buy for this dish only)

Cooking Instructions

  • 2. GLAZE

    Mince the garlic cloves and add to a bowl. Stir together the maple, soy sauce, and dijon in a bowl with the garlic. Add 3 Tablespoons of water.

  • 3. PORK

    Use the smallest baking dish you have that fits the length of the pork loin in it. You can fold the very end of the tail under itself to make an even thickness. Sprinkle the pork with ½ teaspoon of salt and arrange in the pan. Spoon the glaze over top, reserving 1 Tablespoon of glaze. Place in the oven and roast for 8 minutes.

  • 4. RICE

    While that gets started, steam the rice. Combine the rice, water, and ½ teaspoon of salt in a pot with a fitted lid. Bring to a boil, then stir well and reduce the heat to low. Cover and steam for 16 minutes without checking on it. When done, open the lid and stir in 1 - 2 teaspoons of butter to taste, rice can hang out on the stove until you’re ready.

  • 5. EDAMAME

    You can either steam the edamame on the stovetop - or place in a microwaveable bowl with a bit of water and heat that way. They’re fully cooked, you just need to warm them through. Check the package for instructions as well.


    Wash and slice radishes into rounds. Set aside.

  • 7. PORK PART 2

    After 8 minutes of roasting, use tongs to roll the tenderloin over in the pan. Tip the pan and use a spoon to pick up the glaze and baste it over the top. Now add the reserved bit of glaze to the top. Return pork to the oven and cook for another 8 - 14 minutes or until the pork is cooked through - just firm, a little pink in the center, or 140 degrees if you use a thermometer. Remove from the oven and place the pork on a cutting board. Into the baking dish whisk 2 - 3 teaspoons of butter to turn the glaze into sauce.

  • 8. SERVING

    Slice the pork. Plate over a scoop of rice with edamame on the side. Top with radishes. Spoon the sauce over top generously. If you have green onion (or cilantro or basil), sprinkle some on top.

    make sure to use Tamari for the soy sauce
  • PORK:
    chicken breasts or thighs are delicious here. You could also do a whole roast chicken with this glaze, but keep an eye on it for burning, perhaps you’ll need to partially cover with foil while cooking. A hangar steak, flank or skirt steak is also perfect
  • TOFU:
    search our database for the tofu version of this dish
    if you have some, slice and use, other ideas are cilantro, basil, or parsley, or you can leave off
    if you don’t like them, thinly sliced or grated carrots will be great, or cucumbers
    brown rice, quinoa, noodles, or use frozen prepared rice to make it faster
    it tastes a bit like teriyaki so it might be a go for kids. But you can always leave a little piece without sauce. Kids love popping the edamame out of their shells to try which is one reason I used that kind here. Add another vegetable if needed for them to have options

Prep Ahead & Use It Up

  1. Mix up the glaze
