Teriyaki Pork Medallions

Oxmoor House
Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 11 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork, 1 tablespoon sauce, and 1/3 cup pineapple salsa)
Mirin, a rice wine with a low alcohol content, is the key ingredient to this teriyaki sauce's authentic flavor. The wine's high sugar content allows it to reduce into a syrup glaze. Look for mirin in the Asian foods section of your local supermarket. Serve with Pineapple Salsa and precooked white rice.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin
  • Cooking spray
  • Pineapple Salsa

  4. Return pork and accumulated juices to pan. Cook 2 minutes, turning pork to coat. Serve pork with sauce and Pineapple Salsa.
