Asian Pork Tenderloin


My family loves pork, I have many recipes but this seems to be one of our favorites. It is an easy marinate and cooks quickly. It is so tender and delicious. I make this with baby potatoes roasted in olive oil with salt and pepper. Also green beans, or asparagus goes perfect with this. Try this one out you will love it.

1-1 pound piece of pork tenderloin (silver skin removed)
1/3cup soy sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
4 garlic cloves, finely diced
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon brown sugar
pepper to taste
1/2 of a lemon juiced
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce

1. Remove the silver skin from pork
2. Combine the rest of the ingredients and place in a ziploc bag with the pork ( Reserve 3 tablespoons of marinate and set aside)
3. Marinate for 3-4 hours
4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a hot skillet over medium-high heat sear the pork for 2-3 minutes on each side. Then place in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 160 degrees. Let rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

Pan Sauce:
Pan scrapings from the pork
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons of the reserved marinate
2 teaspoons butter

1. Meanwhile, place the skillet on the stove top on medium heat. Add the chicken broth and start scraping all of the bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the reserved marinate and let reduce for 3 minutes. Add the butter and remove from the heat, stirring until the butter has melted. Pour over the pork. Enjoy!!!!!
