Roast Pork Tenderloin with Asian Dry Rub
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15-17 minutes
2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each), trimmed
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a medium baking pan with foil.
Stir together brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, salt, black pepper, cloves, and cayenne pepper in small bowl. Rub pork with brown sugar mixture.
Place pork in prepared pan and roast for 15-18 minutes or until the pork’s internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil, and let stand for 3 minutes. Cut into slices.
Serve the sliced pork tenderloin with brown rice tossed with thinly sliced scallions and fresh chopped cilantro. Steamed bok choy or broccoli drizzled with a tiny bit of Asian sesame oil make quick and easy side dish options.
Reserve 1 pork tenderloin to use for making Baked Pork Egg Rolls, if desired.
Makes 4 servings, plus leftovers
