This is a simple and healthy meal that can be made in less than 30 minutes. I have chosen brown basmati rice, a healthier choice than white rice. My way of cooking rice yields a light and fluffy grain. Boil in plenty of salted water until al dente. Strain through a calendar or sieve and lay a clean tea towel over the rice. Let it steam until the rest of the meal is ready. I use this method for all types of rice.Asian Pork Tenderloin
1 large tenderloin about 1 1/2 pounds.
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
3 tbsp. light brown sugar
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tbsp. peeled and minced fresh ginger
1 tbsp. Asian chile sauce
Trim the pork of any silver skin. Cut on the diagonal into 1/2 inch thick medallions.
In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of the vinegar, 2 tablespoons. of the brown sugar, the garlic, ginger, 1/2 tablespoons. sesame oil, and 2 tsp chile sauce. Toss 1/2 cup of this mixture with the pork medallions in a large bowl; reserve the remaining mixture to use as a sauce. Let the pork sit at room temperature for 15 minutes or refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
Heat 2 tablespoons canola oil in a heavy 12 inch skillet over medium high heat until shimmering hot. Remove the pork from the marinade, shaking off the excess, and transfer the pork to a clean plate. Discard the marinade. Add half of the pork medallions to the skillet, spacing them evenly. Cook them without touching until well browned, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until the pork is just cooked through, about 2 more minutes.
