Prep Ahead Of Time

The pork needs to marinate in a mixture of sriracha sauce, soy sauce and green onions for 2 to 8 hours so this is a great recipe to prep in the morning. The sauce ingredients can also be mixed in the morning, then it only takes about 15 minutes at meal time to finish the recipe.

Simple Sauce

A quarter cup of Sriracha sauce gives the sauce a lot of heat. The other ingredients are soy sauce (use reduced-sodium if you don’t like salty foods or have to watch your sodium intake), ketchup, sugar, garlic, sesame oil, and ground ginger.

Marinating the pork and then coating it in a super flavorful sauce gives it 2 layers of flavor. This recipe is for people who like bold flavors.

Lean and Flavorful

Because pork tenderloin is used for this recipe, it makes a really lean meal. Be careful not to overcook the pork or it won’t be tender. Since it is cut in pieces, it will cook quickly.

Recipe Tips

Boneless chicken breasts or chicken thighs can be used instead of pork tenderloin in this recipe.

A teaspoon of minced fresh ginger can be used instead of ground ginger.

SERVINGS: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 (1 1/2-pound) pork tenderloin
  • 6 green onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Instructions

  • Cut pork tendeloin in half lengthwise so you have 2 long, skinny pieces. Thinly slice each one. Place in a medium bowl.
  • To the bowl, add the green onions, Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, and black pepper. Stir to mix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours.
  • Combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl.
  • Place the oil in a large nonstick skillet. Place over high heat. When hot, add the pork. (Cook in batches if necessary. You don't want to crowd the pork.)
    Cook until browned on the bottom and then flip each piece over.
  • Add the sauce and cook until sauce thickens and pork is cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Serve over white rice.

Notes

If you need to watch sodium intake, use reduced sodium soy sauce.
