Ginger Lime Pork Tenderloin

So the grocery had pork tenderloin on sale today. And, of course, I didn't have anything figured out for dinner yet, so I grabbed one. Of course, I didn't know what I was going to do with it, beyond "cook, serve with zucchini" because that's the veggie I had in the fridge.

Then Hans comes home early.... So no time to marinate anything. I remembered this stuff that we got for Christmas and decided, "Hmmm.... Let's see what we can do."

So I tasted it. Too sweet to put on the pork by itself, though. I decide then that I would add some lime juice (that I just happened to pick up on a whim last week) and a bit of soy sauce. Voila! Instant success!

So that you can share in the deliciousness that is Ginger Lime Pork Tenderloin, here's the recipe:

2lb Pork Tenderloin
4TBS Ginger People Ginger Spread
3TBS lime juice (I used bottled)
1 tsp soy sauce.

Preheat oven to 350. Put pork tenderloin into a 9x13 baking dish.

In a small bowl, mix ginger spread, lime juice and soy sauce with a whisk until well incorporated. Spread half over the pork tenderloin, smearing it all over to coat. Pour remaining sauce onto top of tenderloin so that it creates a thick-ish layer.

Bake for 1:15. Broil for additional 5 minutes, or until sauce on top starts to bubble and brown, watching carefully to prevent burning.

We were hungry, and I wasn't 100% sure that it would be a bloggable dish, so the picture is of what remains.... You get the idea, though!
