Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 15 min

This simple and healthy marinade turns out a very tender meat...

Ingredients:

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar, firmly packed
2 Tablespoons dry sherry
2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely grated
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed of all visible fat & silverskin

Directions:

1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves.

2. Put teriyaki marinade and pork in a sealable plastic zip bag. Seal the bag and marinate the pork in the refrigerator, turning once, for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.

3. Preheat the broiler. Remove the pork from the marinade and discard the marinade. Place pork on roasting pan and broil until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 155 degrees F., about 15 minutes, turning once. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Tips:

*If you're preparing this recipe as GLUTEN FREE, just be sure to use a brand of soy sauce that is designated as GF.
*I prefer to use the "remote" type of thermometer (like this one) that remains inside the meat while roasting. You can set the temperature goal at 155 and it will beep once that temperature has been reached. Easy!
