Great pork! It was so simple and flavorful. I doubled it omitting the cilantro and using seeded rasberry preserves. I didn't think I was going to like the salsa but I was surprised- it went very well with the pork. Super fast and easy- will make again!
Spicy-Sweet Pork Tenderloin
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.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3 pork slices, about 1 tablespoon salsa mixture, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro)
