Grilled Pork Tenderloin Marinated in Spicy Soy Sauce

Don't heat up your house. Heat up the grills with this sweet and spicy low-sodium soy-marinated pork tenderloin medallions.

Pick N Save is helping me out with pork tenderloin on sale and I am pairing it with coupons and coming up with the tastiest money saving around! It is normally $6.99 and I got it for $1.99/lb. to make my featured recipe today.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin Marinated in Spicy Soy Sauce
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbs sugar
1 large clove garlic, peeled and finely grated or minced
1 Tbs finely grated fresh ginger
1 fresh red Thai chile (see Note) or cayenne chile pepper, stemmed, seeded and minced
1 Tbs toasted sesame oil
1 1/2 lbs pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch-thick medallions

1. Whisk soy sauce and sugar in a medium bowl until the sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in garlic, ginger, chile and oil.

2. Place pork in a resealable plastic bag. Add the marinade and seal the bag, squeezing air out. Turn the bag to coat the medallions. Refrigerate for 2 hours, turning the bag once to redistribute the marinade.

3. Preheat the grill to medium. Remove the pork from the marinade. (Discard marinade.) Grill the medallions until just cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

Thai chiles can be red or green, are only about 1 1/2 inches long and 1/4-inch or less in diameter. They are on the high end of the heat scale. Find them in Asian markets. If unavailable, substitute fresh cayenne chiles or 1/2 teaspoon or more to taste of purchased chile sauce, such as sriracha. Fresh chiles can be frozen, in a air-tight, for up to 3 months.
