Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin (14 oz/400 g)
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
Sauce:
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 sweet red pepper sliced
  • 1 hot red pepper coarsely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons smooth Thai chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced gingerroot
  • 1 green onion chopped

Method

Sprinkle pork with garlic, ginger, salt and pepper; let stand for 10 minutes.

In ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; sear pork all over, about 5 minutes.

Transfer to 400°F (200°C) oven; roast until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

Sauce: Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook red pepper, hot pepper and garlic until tender, about 3 minutes.

Stir in chili sauce, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce and ginger; simmer, stirring, until reduced to 1/2 cup (125 mL), about 4 minutes. Stir in green onion. Pour sauce over pork to serve.
