Why I Love This Recipe
This is a recipe that I can easily adapt to my grandson, David's allergy to soy. I omit the soy and replace it with orange juice for his portion of the dish. Our family really enjoys this recipe cooked in an iron skillet in cold months and served with rice. In warm months, we grill the meat and serve it in lettuce wrappers. Enjoy!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 lb. pork tenderloin, sliced in thin slices
1/2 c. Asian sweet chili sauce
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. orange juice
3 sliced green onions, divided
2 T. finely minced fresh ginger
2 T. sesame seeds
2 T. honey
2 T. oil
Green leaf lettuce to wrap meat or hot cooked rice or pasta, your choice
Put sliced meat in a gallon size plastic bag. In a bowl mix together Asian sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, orange juice, 1/2 of green onion, fresh ginger, sesame seeds, and honey. Pour over meat in bag and turn bag to coat all meat. Marinate meat for no less than 30 minutes up to overnight. Remove meat from marinade, reserving marinade. Heat oil in a skillet over stove or on grill. Add meat to pan and brown on both sides. Add marinade and cook for 2-3 minutes to cook marinade. Sprinkle with remaining green onion before serving in green leaf lettuce wrappers or over rice or pasta.
