Roast Pork Tenderloin with Ginger and Garlic

Pork tenderloin is a great lean meat, with a relatively quick cooking time, and not too expensive, at least for meat.  Pork picks up flavors well, so it can easily be varied to offer new tastes.  Season the pork a bit ahead of time if you wish, which allows the flavors to meld and absorb into the meat.  Serve with roasted vegetables and quinoa, wheat berries, or barley for a complete and healthy meal.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25-30 minutes

Makes: 4 Servings

Ingredients

1 lb. pork tenderloin

4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and minced

1 small shallot, minced

1-2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar (or white wine vinegar)

Fine sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoon olive oil

2-4 scallions, sliced (for garnish)

Equipment

Process

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mince 4 garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, and 1 small shallot.  Place the minced aromatics into a small bowl and add the 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar.  Allow this mixture to sit for 5-10 minutes.

Sprinkle the pork tenderloin all over with fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Rub the 2 tablespoons of olive oil all over the pork tenderloin.

When the minced garlic, ginger, and shallots have soaked in the vinegar for 5-10 minutes, rub this mixture all over the pork tenderloin.

Place the pork tenderloin in a shallow roasting pan or oven proof skillet.

Roast at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 25-30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145-150 degrees Fahrenheit.  Let the tenderloin rest for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
