Teriyaki-Ginger Pork Tenderloin


1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin
Cooking spray
1 1⁄2 tablespoons roasted garlic or regular teriyaki sauce
1 1⁄2 teaspoons cornstarch
1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 (6-oz) can pineapple juice


Trim fat from pork. Slice tenderloin into 1⁄2-inch slices; flatten slices with palm of hand. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add pork, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned.

Combine teriyaki sauce and remaining 3 ingredients, stirring well. Add to pork in skillet. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Remove pork from skillet, and spoon sauce over pork.

This was great served with rice. I would definitely double the recipe for the sauce. It needs the extra sauce to pour over the pork and the rice.

Trader Joes has great pork tenderloins in around the 1 pound range.
