Ingredients

  • 2 Medium Pork Tenderloins
  • 1 drizzle Oil (lightly coat the bottom of the pan)
  • 2 pinches Salt & Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 Small Onion (finely diced)
  • 1/3 cup Lite Soy Sauce
  • 1 cup Beef Stock or Beef Broth
  • 1/4 cup Heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 Medium Lemon (zested)
  • 1 tablespoon Honey (or to taste)
  • 4 bags Brothers-All-Natural Mandarin Orange Fruit Crisps
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • Scallions (as needed, bias cut for garnish)
  • Lemon zest (as needed for garnish)

Optional

  • Toasted Sesame Seeds (as needed for garnish)

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F
Step 2
Wash pork tenderloins and remove silverskin. Season all sides liberally with salt and pepper. Heat a large sauté pan over high heat until hot. Add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Place pork in pan and sear on high on the first side for about 5 minutes, or until a dark golden crust appears and pork easily lifts from the pan. Sear on the second side for another 4 minutes or so. Flip one more time to a third side and sear another 3 minutes or so. You may add more oil during the searing process if needed.

Step 3
Remove pork from pan and place on a foil-covered sheet tray. Finish baking in the 500 degree F oven for about 5-10 minutes or until pork is cooked through (depending on the size of the tenderloins).

Step 4
While the pork is roasting in the oven, sauté the onions in the pan the pork was seared in. Add more oil if needed. When onions are translucent, deglaze the pan with soy sauce and beef stock. Whisk the bits off of the bottom of the pan. Let mixture reduce for a few minutes until it starts getting thick and syrupy. Add heavy cream, ginger, sesame oil, lemon zest, honey, and Brothers-All-Natural Mandarin Orange Fruit Crisps. Cook until mixture is at sauce consistency, about 2-3 more minutes. When sauce is ready, whisk in the butter until melted.

Step 5
When pork is finished roasting, remove from oven and let rest about 10 minutes. Slice pork on a bias and lay out on a platter. Drizzle with prepared sauce, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and fresh lemon zest for garnish. If desired, slice some fresh herbs or use bias cut green onions for garnish. Serve.
