Pork Tenderloin a la Chason.jpeg

1 1/2 pounds whole pork tenderloin

6 ounces pineapple juice

4 ounces soy sauce

2-4 cloves garlic, minced

4 slices fresh ginger

Freshly ground pepper

Sesame oil

Marinate the pork in the pineapple juice, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger.  It is not necessary to marinate the pork for a long period of time; while it is coming to room temperature would be long enough.  Grill the pork over medium-high heat for about 15-20 minutes, leaving the center pink.  (Overcooking the meat will make it tough.)  During the last couple of minutes, drizzle a bit of the sesame oil over the top (just a couple of dashes).  The pork can also be browned on the top of the stove and cooked in the oven.  The sesame oil is a very KEY ingredient.  This is a simple recipe, but very tasty, and low in fat.  Serves 4-6

* I buy Niman Ranch Pork Tenderloins at Harris Teeter not only because I like the product but you can buy in singles. When you are cooking for one, that is an important feature.
