Ginger Honey Barbecued Pork Tenderloin
from Dinners for a Year and Beyond
2 pork tenderloins, about 2 pounds total weight
Chinese 5-Spice seasoning
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1. To prepare the ginger barbecue sauce, in a small saucepan combine honey, teriyaki sauce, barbecue sauce, ground ginger, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 - 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Set aside.
2. Heat a large saute pan to medium high and add about a tablespoon of olive oil. Season tenderloins with the Chinese 5-Spice. Brown on all sides in the saute pan.
3. Prepare grill and cook tenderloin for about a half hour. (Or you can bake at 450 in the oven, in a pan lined with tinfoil, for 15 minutes.)
4. To serve pork, slice into medallions about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick and drizzle with the remaining barbecue sauce.
*I only used one pork tenderloin but made the full amount of the sauce.
