Asian Glazed Roasted Pork

Asian Glazed Roasted Pork

makes 6 servings


2 pork tenderloins, about 3/4 pound (360 g) each
1/2 cup (120 ml) canned low-sodium chicken broth


1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon (5 ml) minced fresh ginger
2 scallions, white part only, minced
1 small Thai chile pepper or jalapeño, seeded and minced
1/3 cup (80 ml) fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon (15 ml) fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon (5 ml) grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) dark sesame oil

In a medium bowl, whisk together garlic, ginger, scallions, chile pepper, orange juice, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Whisk in olive oil and sesame oil. Pour mixture into a large self-sealing plastic bag.

Add the tenderloins to the bag and seal. Let stand, occasionally turning bag, for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Remove tenderloins from the marinade and place in a roasting pan. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until an instant meat thermometer registers 160°F.

Meanwhile, place marinade and broth in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

To serve, thinly slice pork on the diagonal. Arrange slices on a heated serving platter and nap with some of the sauce. Serve immediately.
