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!

Directions

  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 pork chops. We will definitely be making this again! :)

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 too much lime for us, so I will probably only squeeze half of one next time. Also, I didn't have chile-garlic powder like it called for. I should have added more garlic in that case. All and all a good recipe. Plenty of room to play but a solid base.

Ginger Lime Pork Tenderloin Haiku: "Followed exactly, all the great flavors were lost. Marinate longer?" I stayed true to the recipe, and marinated my pork tenderloin for easily 4+ hours, but we couldn't really detect any of the lime or ginger; mostly soy sauce unfortunately.
