Smiles to you friends,
I know I keep saying it, but it is so
HOT here! It's so hot I don't even head out doors to grill!
I'm a girl who loves salt, so when I pulled out a pork tenderloin out of the freezer this morning an Asian recipe came to mind.
In our home we love pork tenderloin, it is a lean cut of meat and is as versatile as chicken.
A quick and easy recipe to satisfy your taste buds.
Asian Pork Tenderloin
What you need:
1 Pork tenderloin (approx. 1 pound)
3 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
2 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/2 Tsp Onion Powder
2 Cloves Minced Garlic
1 Tsp Black Pepper
1/2 Tbsp Chili Garlic Sauce (this is spicy so use according to your taste buds)
1/2 Tbsp Corn Starch
1/2 Cup Chicken or Beef Broth
1) Preheat over to 400° and gather and measure out all of your ingredients. Oops forgot black pepper in picture!
2) Combine soy sauce, sesame oil, oyster sauce, onion powder, chili garlic sauce, brown sugar, garlic and black pepper in to a Ziploc bag. Seal and marinate for at least 4 hours. I usually prepare the morning of, or evening before.
3) Heat your pan and coat with olive oil and sear the pork tenderloin on all sides. I have over 5 cast iron pans, love them and nothing beats how they sear, keep and even temperature and no Teflon leaking! I have found all of my cast iron at garage sales.
4) Once seared, place in oven until done (my pro-line stove, took 10 minutes, so for approx. 15-18 minutes.)
5) Take out and let rest for 10 minutes (while the meat rests the internal temperature will rise at least 5°). Note: tenderloin is safe to serve slightly pink.
6) While resting pour marinade and stock in sauce pan, bring to boil and add cornstarch to thicken.
As a quick side I I chopped some broccoli, onion and green pepper (day before shopping, all I had) and mixed 2 Tbsp of Soy sauce and 2 tsp. of Sesame oil together and poured mixed evenly over veggies.
When the pork came out to rest I put veggies in on 2nd rack from top - 10-15 minutes should do it.
Slice pork, plate and pour some sauce over, add some of your veggies.
