Directions

  1. Cut tenderloin into 4 pieces. Arrange in a single layer between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet until each is about 1-inch thick. Generously season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Whisk ketchup, rice vinegar, reserved pineapple juice, brown sugar, garlic, hot chili sauce, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over high heat. Place pork in pan; reduce heat to medium. Cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Return skillet to medium heat. Stir butter into hot pan. When butter melts and starts to brown, stir in pineapple chunks. Cook, stirring, until pineapple is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Stir in ketchup mixture and 1/4 cup green onion (white parts). Reduce heat to low and simmer until garlic and onion have softened, 5 minutes.
  6. Return pork to skillet; cook, stirring, until pork is heated through. Garnish with 2 tablespoons green onion tops.

A very tasty meal. The only change I made was to saute some carrot, onion, and Green pepper after removing the pork and before adding the pineapple--reserving the veg, adding back in once the fruit was carmelized. I made this dinner for two, and the amount of sauce was adequate. You may wish to increase the sauce ingredients for four.

We LOVED this!! I didn't add all the hot sauce, and for my photo I forgot to put the green onion tops on (sorry---it would have looked so much better). I served this with sticky rice (calrose) and artichokes. We all pronounced this a KEEPER! Thanks once again, Chef John!
