Servings: 4

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 tsp scallions, minced
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • black sesame seeds for garnish, optional
METHOD
  1. Place tenderloin in a zip top bag with soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, garlic, ginger, scallions and honey. Marinade in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. *Can also marinade overnight*
  2. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  3. When ready to cook, lightly coat a non-stick skillet or grill pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Grill the tenderloin for 3 minutes per side. Reserve marinade.
  4. If skillet is oven-safe, place skillet in oven and cook tenderloin for additional 15 minutes. If skillet is not oven safe, transfer tenderloin to an oven-safe dish and cook for additional 15 minutes.
  5. While tenderloin is cooking, pour marinade in a small saucepan and add 1/4 cup water. Bring to a boil until reduced by half. When reduced, stir in cornstarch until sauce thickens.
  6. Remove tenderloin from oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Pour sauce over tenderloin and cut into even sized pieces.
  7. Garnish with black sesame seeds if desired.
