I made this up one night with garlic mashed potatoes and my husband made me swear to include it in the rotation. It originated from a marinade my mother had for moose meat, but the lime and chili garlic sauce adds a fresh twist. Warning: I didn't measure; it's all approximations to your taste!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, cane sugar, lime juice, lime zest, green onion, garlic, ground ginger, and chile-garlic sauce together in a large glass or ceramic bowl; add the sliced pork and toss to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.

  • Remove pork from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard marinade.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork slices in oil until no longer pink in the center, about 2 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Make sure you add extra marinade to the pan and it will heat up to a great gravy for rice or potatoes. I did garlic parmesan mashed potatoes and it tasted fantastic.

I loved this recipe. My husband gobbled it up like a wild turkey. I added onion powder since I did not have a green onion and I used plain vinegar since I did not have rice wine vinegar. It was still wonderful. I will save it and use it again. Read More

Ginger Lime Pork Tenderloin Haiku: "Followed exactly, all the great flavors were lost. Marinate longer?" I stayed true to the recipe, and marinated my pork tenderloin for easily 4+ hours, but we couldn't really detect any of the lime or ginger; mostly soy sauce unfortunately. Read More

Delicious. Used two limes as I wasn t sure how much juice I was getting out of them. Tasted the lime and the ginger just fine. Took recommendation of another set aside some of the marinade before dropping the pork into it so that I could make a sauce from it. So nice over riced cauliflower. Highly recommend and will make again. Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe. I made exactly as directed except after tasting I added 3 more dashes of chile garlic sauce. I marinated mine for almost 6 hours and served this with rice and broccoli. I also poured a little of the pan juices over it for extra flavor. Read More

My boyfriend and I LOVED this recipe! I marinated it for 4 hours and used pork chops instead tenderloin strips. Then I heated up some of the marinade and put it over mashed potatoes and the pork chops. We will definitely be making this again!:) Read More

If I made this again I would reduce the soy sauce to 1/2 cup. I found the sauce heavy and found the mix of ingredients lost much of the flavour. Read More

Very tender and flavorful although the soy sauce overpowered any ginger or lime flavor. Next time I would cut back the soy and add more ginger & lime to the marinade Read More
