Thai Baked Pork Tenderloin
Dress up your pork tenderloin with the flavors of Thailand. Serve this pork tenderloin with a simple cucumber salad and rice for a restaurant quality meal.
Servings: 6 servings
- 1/4 cup coconut aminos or sub 2 tablespoons soy sauce + 2 tablespoons water
- 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 2 tablespoons ginger fresh, grated
- 1 tablespoons garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon paleo sriracha
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 pound pork tenderloin
Add all the ingredients except the pork into a bowl, and whisk to combine.
Place the pork tenderloin in an air tight container, and cover with the marinade. Marinate for 2 hours up to overnight, turning the tenderloin over once in a while for even marinating.
Preheat the Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-in Wall Oven on SuperSteam Grill at 485º.If using a conventional oven, preheat the oven on Broil.
Place the pork in a baking dish, and pour the reserved marinade in a small saucepan.
Bake the pork tenderloin for 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145º F for a medium cooked tenderloin. See notes below for other cooking temperatures.If using a conventional oven set to Broil, turn the tenderloin over 1/2 way through baking time, and check for internal temperature at this time and at intervals of 3-4 minutes afterwards.
Heat the marinade over medium low heat and allow it to simmer until it's reduced by half, stirring occasionally.
Pour the marinade through a mesh sieve to remove the chunks of ginger and garlic.
Allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes prior to slicing. Drizzle with the reduced sauce, or serve with the sauce on the side.
*The internal temperature of the tenderloin will continue to rise for a few minutes after taking it out of the oven. I typically pull my pork tenderloin out of the oven about 3-4º below the temperatures below.
135º - Medium Rare
145º - Medium
160º - Well Done
