Total: 35 minutes


  • 2 pork tenderloins, about 3/4 pound each
  • ½ cup canned low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 scallions, white part only, minced
  • 1 small Thai chile pepper or jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together garlic, ginger, scallions, chile pepper, orange juice, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Whisk in olive oil and sesame oil. Pour mixture into a large self-sealing plastic bag.
  2. Add the tenderloins to the bag and seal. Let stand, occasionally turning bag, for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  4. Remove tenderloins from the marinade and place in a roasting pan. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until an instant meat thermometer registers 160°F.
  5. Meanwhile, place marinade and broth in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  6. To serve, thinly slice pork on the diagonal. Arrange slices on a heated serving platter and drizzle with some of the sauce. Serve immediately.
