Roasted Asian-Style Lean Pork Tenderloin

Roasted Asian-Style Lean Pork Tenderloin


1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed

¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 teaspoon ginger (from a jar)

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoons sesame oil or canola oil

Cooking spray, such as olive oil spray

2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon brown sugar


1. Place pork in a large plastic bag. In a small bowl, combine the marinade ingredients. Pour marinade into the bag over the pork. Refrigerate for 2 hours, turning occasionally.

2. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Transfer pork to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Pour a little marinade over the pork and discard the rest.

3. Bake for exactly 5½ minutes per pound. Turn oven OFF and DO NOT open oven door for 1 hour! Remove pork from oven and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Pork will be perfectly done and very tender.

4. To make glaze: In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, honey and sugar. Heat in microwave for 20 seconds, just before serving. Drizzle glaze over the top of the pork.

5. Divide sliced pork among 4 plates.

Serves 4 (each serving, 4 ounces of pork)
