Spicy-Sweet Pork Tenderloin

Spicy-Sweet Pork Tenderloin
Yield

4 servings (serving size: 3 pork slices, about 1 tablespoon salsa mixture, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro)

Spooning the soy sauce mixture over the top of each piece of pork lets it soak into the meat like a quick marinade. Round out the meal with mashed potatoes and steamed baby carrots.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut crosswise into 12 (3/4-inch-thick) slices
  • 1/3 cup bottled salsa
  • 1 tablespoon seedless raspberry preserves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
