Soy Citrus Pork Tenderloin

This is a really great recipe that I modified from Clean Eating Magazine. I’ve used lower sugar orange marmalade in a sauce for chicken and salmon before, so I knew it would be good!  You can make this one of two ways.

1) Marinate the meat or fish in the sauce, then boil the sauce afterwards

2) Grill the pork, combine the sauce ingredients separately, and microwave for 2 minutes to heat it up.

I didn’t have time to marinate, so I went with option #2, saved cleaning a small pot, too!

For nutritional info purposes, I’ve done it with pork in this instance, but again, feel free to switch it up with whatever protein you want!

Soy Citrus Pork Tenderloin with Bok Choy

Makes 6 servings

1/4 cup lower sodium soy sauce
Zest & juice of 1 lime
2 tsp grated ginger root
1 Tbsp sesame oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced or grated
1/4 cup reduced sugar orange marmalade
1 large bok choy
Cooking spray

Pre-heat your BBQ, indoor grill or oven.  In a small bowl mix together the sauce (soy sauce, lime zest & juice, ginger root, garlic, sesame oil, orange marmalade).  Cook pork tenderloins on all sides until no longer pink (about 10-12 minutes total on grill).  Meanwhile, heat sauce in microwave for 2 minutes.  In the last 6-7 minutes of cooking, add the bok choy to the grill.  Flip to cook on all sides as well.

Serve with a few leaves of bok choy and a couple tablespoons of sauce.
