Easy Pork Tenderloin

Pork Tenderloin is so easy and good for you too! Today, I cheated and bought the pre-seasoned pork tenderloin at the grocery store. The store offers a variety of flavors, including peppercorn, but I had envisioned a P.F. Chang’s inspired meal.

The pre-seasoned tenderloin was $5.99. It could feed a family of 3 for two nights, or a family of 6 one night. If math is correct, this meal is right around $1.00/$1.50 per person.

The instructions are on the back of the Pork Tenderloin package. Of course, I did what it said, and cooked it in an oven-safe dish for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

While the pork cooked, I sliced up a bunch of green onions/scallions on a diagonal and pulled out some sesame seeds. In a small sauce pan, I put about a tablespoon olive oil in to coat the pan. Once hot, I added the green onions and sesame seeds. To that, I added a two tablespoons soy sauce, a tablespoon of hot chili sauce (spicy heat), and 2 tablespoons of peanut sauce (sweet). It made a perfect topping for the Pork Tenderloin.

Here's another alternative recipe for Pork Tenderloin:

As a leftover option, cut up the leftover pork, and make stir fry the next night. Just saute onions, peppers and the pork in a bit of soy sauce or stir fry sauce and pour over white rice. You can also make pork tacos or pork quesadillas with the leftovers.

Tasty and good for you!
