Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin with Peanut Sauce

Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin with Peanut Sauce

by Pam on February 25, 2014

I had a pork tenderloin in the refrigerator that needed to be cooked up so I went in search of recipes. I found this recipe on Fine Cooking[1] that looked simple and perfect. I thought it was interesting that the recipe had you cut the pork lengthwise nearly in half then flatten it with a mallet. It ended up looking like a flank steak when I was done and I loved that it would take less time to cook evenly. I marinated the meat for 4 hours then set it out at room temperature for 20 minutes prior to cooking it in the grill pan. The pork turned out extremely tender and so flavorful. We all LOVED the peanut sauce and thought it tasted great with the pork. The pork paired nicely with the Garlicky Snow Peas[2] and Coconut Cilantro Rice[3] I served with it. We all thought the whole meal was fantastic.

In a measuring cup, whisk the coconut milk, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, garlic, and coriander to make the peanut sauce.

Trim the pork of excess fat and remove the silver skin – click here for instructions[4]. Butterfly the tenderloin by splitting it lengthwise almost but not quite all the way through, so the halves remain attached.

Open the tenderloin (like a book) then cover with saran wrap, and pound to a 1/2-inch thickness with a meat mallet. Put the pork tenderloin in a large zip lock bag then pour half the marinade on top (reserving the other half). Squish it around so the meat is evenly coated. Place the meat in the refrigerator and marinate for 4 hours. Remove from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to cooking to let the meat come to room temperature.

Heat a large grill pan coated in cooking spray over medium high heat. Remove the tenderloin from the marinade then lightly season both sides with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Place the tenderloin in the HOT grill pan then cook for 5 -6 minutes before flipping and cooking for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through. Transfer to a carving board and let the meat rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving the the reserved peanut sauce on the side (I heated the sauce up for 20-30 seconds in the microwave before serving). Enjoy.

Mexican Adobo Rubbed Grilled Pork Tenderloin

A lean pork tenderloin, rubbed with Mexican adobo and grilled or broiled to give you a great tasting, smoky, tender piece of meat.

Pork tenderloin is the leanest cut of pork, in fact it’s just as lean as a skinless chicken breast, and it doesn’t take long to cook, which makes it perfect for busy weeknights. If you’re tired of making the same ‘ole thing for dinner, this is the answer (and bonus, it’s totally man-friendly).

I was really in the mood for some Cilantro Lime Rice[1], and I thought it was the perfect compliment; I used some lime wedges to squeeze over the pork – delish! I was craving white rice, but I often use brown rice too as a whole grain option. For an even healthier side, last week’s Fiesta Bean Salad[2] would also be fabulous!

This recipe is from the cookbook Simple Food, Big Flavor[3],
by Aarón Sánchez (you may know him as one of the judges on Chopped[4]).
Yesterday I made a batch of Aaron’s Adobo[5] with full intentions of making
this pork dish. I still have a lot of adobo left, so I’m going to use
the rest to grill some pork chops this weekend. It was pretty chilly
yesterday, so rather than making this on my grill, I used my broiler instead.

Pork Tenderloin Stuffed with Spinach, Roasted Bell Pepper, Mushroom, and Parmesan

Pork Tenderloin Stuffed with Spinach, Roasted Bell Pepper, Mushroom, and Parmesan

by Pam on December 10, 2013

I had a pork tenderloin in the refrigerator to use up so I went in search of ingredients that I could stuff it with. I found some fresh spinach, roasted bell peppers, a few mushrooms, fresh basil, and some Parmesan cheese. I sliced the pork tenderloin nearly in half then pounded it thin. I seasoned the meat then layered on the ingredients before rolling it up and searing it in a hot pan. I baked it in the oven and it turned out beautifully! The pork was really tender and the stuffing added so much flavor to the meat. My kids ate all of their portions so I take that as a good sign. My husband and I both thought it was delicious. I served this stuffed tenderloin with some green beans and the Creamy Garlic and Parmesan Mashed Potatoes[1] for a delicious meal.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the pork tenderloin on a cutting board. Trim any fat from the meat then remove the silverskin (click here for instructions[2]). Using a very sharp knife make a lengthwise cut down the center of the pork tenderloin, cutting to but not through the other side. Spread the meat open and place a piece of  plastic wrap over the top. Working from the center to the edges, pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to form a rectangle.

Stir together chopped spinach, mushrooms, roasted bell pepper, basil, panko crumbs, minced garlic, and Parmesan cheese in a bowl. Season the pork tenderloin with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then spread the spinach mixture evenly over the pork.

Roll up jelly-roll style. Use toothpicks to seal together. Season the pork with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Heat the olive oil in an OVEN PROOF skillet over medium high heat. Place the stuffed pork tenderloin in the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. Flip the pork over and place into the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Remove from the oven and let the meat rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy.
