Crisp on the outside and buttery-tender on the inside, these sweet and spicy soy sauce-marinated pork tenderloin medallions make for a delicious, healthful and elegant entree. Serve with snow peas, brown rice and Sour Mango Salad on the side.

  • 1/4 cup
    reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons
  • 1 large clove
    garlic, peeled and finely grated or minced
  • 1 tablespoon
    finely grated fresh ginger
  • fresh red Thai chile or cayenne chile pepper
  • 1 tablespoon
    toasted sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds
    pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch-thick medallions
  1. Whisk soy sauce and sugar in a medium bowl until the sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in garlic, ginger, chile and oil.
  2. Place pork in a resealable plastic bag. Add the marinade and seal the bag, squeezing air out. Turn the bag to coat the medallions. Refrigerate for 2 hours, turning the bag once to redistribute the marinade.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium. Remove the pork from the marinade. (Discard marinade.) Grill the medallions until just cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
