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)

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil

  • 1 tablespoon seedless raspberry preserves

Preparation

Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Flatten each pork piece to 1/2-inch thickness using your fingertips. Add pork to pan; spoon soy sauce mixture evenly over pork slices. Cook 3 minutes or until browned. Turn pork over; cook 3 minutes or until done. Remove from pan.
