"I made this up one night with garlic mashed potatoes and my husband made me swear to include it in the rotation. It originated from a marinade my mother had for moose meat, but the lime and chili garlic sauce adds a fresh twist. Warning: I didn't measure; it's all approximations to your taste!"

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, cane sugar, lime juice, lime zest, green onion, garlic, ground ginger, and chile-garlic sauce together in a large glass or ceramic bowl; add the sliced pork and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.
  2. Remove pork from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard marinade.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork slices in oil until no longer pink in the center, about 2 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

My boyfriend and I LOVED this recipe! I marinated it for 4 hours, and used pork chops instead tenderloin strips. Then, I heated up some of the marinade and put it over mashed potatoes and the po...

This recipe really makes for tender pork when it is low-fat and not marbled. I didn't select the recipe but did the cooking, so I was doubtful about all the sugar - but it is really needed becau...

Great recipe, very easy to do. Hubby and I devoured it last night! Will cut marinade amount in half next time as it was too much for one tenderloin. Really appreciate not having to turn on my o...

This was a good little recipe. We paired it with egg noodles and we turned the marinade into a sauce instead of tossing it by boiling it down and adding a cornstarch slurry. There was a little...

I really enjoyed this recipe. I made exactly as directed except after tasting I added 3 more dashes of chile garlic sauce. I marinated mine for almost 6 hours and served this with rice and bro...
