Asian Pork Tenderloin (C.O.S.T. Take Two)



As 10 Minute Dinners continues to build it’s recipe repertoire, you will find an entire category on C.O.S.T. Cooking Meals. These recipes include meals which, if you don’t eat all the meat at one sitting, you will be able to cook once, but serve it twice (or three times), yet no one will consider them left overs. *See below for Take Two Meals

Similar to how I prepared my Southwest and Italian Chicken in my “What I did with 30 lbs of Chicken in a hour” post, this easy Asian Pork Tenderloin recipe takes the “freezer bag” concept to a new level. Very often, I purchase two pork tenderloins at one time, and use this concept to make one for dinner immediately, but mix the other tenderloin with its marinade in a ziplock bag and freeze for later use.

This is one of those recipes that you can use to impress even your biggest critiques and they will assume you spent hours in the kitchen. It’s also a pork recipe that all of our children love, and that’s not always the case. If the kids love it, it’s a winner.

(Tip for slicing the pork – always slice opposite the grain for nice smooth pieces.)

 C.O.S.T Cooking – Take Two Meals:

Serve on a bed of wild, brown, or white rice, steamed broccoli and garnish with grilled pineapple slices.

Slice leftover pork,  reheat and place on a warm hoagie bun. Top with provolone cheese for a quick and hot sandwich.  Broil the sandwich to melt the cheese if you like.  Serve with some fresh vegetables for a well rounded meal.

Roll remaining pork, rice, broccoli and pineapple into large wraps.

Slice remaining pork and place on mixed salad greens. Top with your favorite dressing for a light and easy meal.

  1. I really like the sound of the Asian Pork Tenderloin. A lovely fancy dinner first and good casual dinners later… Yummm!

  2. we love pork and sounds good to have 2 different meals from one cooking! thanks

  3. This sounds delicious! And so much easier than most Asian recipes!
    This is my first time hearing about C.O.S.T. meals. This gives me some ideas for how to serve the same thing without it being the same leftovers to my family, just because I served it a little differently.
    Thanks for the ideas!

  7. I like to dice leftover pork and make fried rice. Great for dinner and makes great lunch leftovers.

  8. Holy smokes! I just opened up my email and found this fantastic recipe. I am going to give this a try on Sunday and see if I can have some good lunches for the next couple of days after. Might even go balls out and use the rice cooker and make white rice and drizzle the cooked sauce on it. Slayer rules!

  9. When you say peppers are you talking about red peppers?

  10. I found your blog through The Nester’s 31 days page, and I’m looking forward to reading and sampling your recipes! Thanks for these helpful tips for reusing the same meal in quick and creative ways!
