    Grilled Pork Tenderloin Marinated in Spicy Soy Sauce

    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 sugar
    • 1 large clove garlic, peeled and finely grated or minced
    • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
    • 1 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


    Step 1
    Whisk soy sauce and sugar in a medium bowl until the sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in garlic, ginger, chile and oil.
    Step 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.
    Step 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.
