Sesame Lime Ginger Grilled Pork Tenderloin
Last Friday I was watching Regis and Kelly and a chef named Kevin Lowe presented an amazing looking pork tenderloin. As soon as I was done watching it I ran to the grocery store. We didn’t BBQ it, we ended up tossing it in the oven and I rotated it over 40-50 minutes. This Sesame Lime Ginger Pork Tenderloin is incredibly satisfying anyway you cook it.
Sesame Lime Ginger Pork Tenderloin
- 2 Pork Tenderloins
- 5 oz. fresh ginger
- 6 oz. sesame oil
- Lime juice of 2 limes
- 1 Tbsp Soy sauce & ½ cup of ham stock
- 3 teasp cornstarch slurry (paste of water and cornstarch)
In a food processor, grind peeled ginger. Then add sesame oil and lime juice to form an emulsion. Process for a 3-4 of minutes. This is your marinade. Marinate pork tenderloins for 24 hours. Grill pork tenderloins slowly, basting with marinade as often as you can.
For an added twist, reserve 1/3 of original marinade. Heat this in a skillet and add the soy sauce and 1/2 cup of ham stock. Reduce by 1/2 the liquid and add a 3 teaspoon cornstarch slurry. This should thicken slightly. This can be used as a finishing sauce.
* Cornstarch slurry is a mixture of cornstarch and water. 3 tsp cornstarch and 1/3 cup of water. Or add to whatever consistency you would like.
I don’t have a food processor, I used a blender instead. Another thing is that ham stock is hard to come by in the grocery store chicken stock or vegetable stock will work just fine. Cook on the grill or oven for 40-50 minutes. I heated my oven to 375 F
I have now made this numerous times and it’s one of our family’s favourites. On cold days we roast it in the oven, but in the summer it goes straight on the grill. Delicious anyway you try it.
