Asian Glazed Roasted Pork

Takeout is never as good as home cooking. Try this pork the next time you’re craving the flavors you can’t get anywhere else.

Tip: Marinades do their best work with a little time. You can get decent flavor with the quick marination suggested here, but if you can set the meat up to marinate the night before, it will taste even better.

Ingredients

  • Marinade:

    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
    • 2 scallions, minced
    • 1 Thai chili pepper, seeded and minced
    • ⅓ cup orange juice
    • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
    • 1 tsp. lemon zest
    • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
    • ¼ tsp. sesame oil

    Pork:

    • 1½ lbs. pork tenderloin
    • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together marinade ingredients. Pour mixture into a freezer bag.
  2. Add the tenderloins to the bag and seal. Refrigerate to marinate (30 minutes).
  3. Preheat the oven to 400º F.
  4. Remove the tenderloins from the marinade and place in a roasting pan. Roast until meat reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165º F (45 minutes).
  5. While meat cooks, place marinade and broth in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and keep at a boil for at least 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium and cook until slightly thickened (5 minutes).
  6. Serve pork thinly sliced with sauce on the side.
