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, [4] 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.
