Pork Tenderloin Steaks

After years of looking for recipes for pork tenderloin, it’s clear that butterflying and grilling with a rub is most flavorful. But, it dries out. And, winter is here. The moistest tenderest methodology I’ve found is the following:

Cut the loin crosswise into 4-5 chunks, depending on length and size.

Between two sheets of cling wrap, pound out the slices, both sides, so that they flatten to a little steak of about 1/2″.

Marinade in a favorite sauce. I like Stonewall Kitchen Teriyaki, Sriracha, Wasabi Ginger, or Maple Chipotle sauces. I also add a little balsamic vinegar.

Coat both sides of pork tenderloin steaks.

Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or more.

When ready to cook, bring to room temperature.

Sauté and brown 2 julienned bell peppers, a chile or jalapeño pepper and a sliced onion in a large frying pan in a little olive oil.

Push to outer sides of pan.

Take pork tenderloin steaks out of marinade, pat dry and sear on both sides.

Add 1/4 cup chicken broth and stir to deglaze.

Add more fresh sauce over the meat.

Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes until cooked through but still pink.

Serve topped with peppers, onions and sauce juices over rice.
