Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes (+ 4 hours marinating time)

Serves: 6



1/2 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup rice vinegar

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp minced fresh ginger

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp garlic chili paste (such as sriracha)

2 pork tenderloins, trimmed


Noodle Salad:

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup lime juice

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp garlic chili paste (such as sriracha)

2 tsp sesame oil

2 tsp brown sugar

1 tsp minced fresh ginger

1 clove garlic, minced

8 oz soba noodles, cooked and drained

1 cup shredded carrots

1 cup shredded purple cabbage

1 cup very thinly sliced red pepper

1 cup bean sprouts

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

1/4 cup chopped peanuts



1. Pork: Whisk together soy sauce, orange juice, rice vinegar, honey, ginger, garlic and chili paste. Pour half of the mixture into resealable plastic bag; add pork tenderloins. Marinate for at least 4 hours or up to overnight. Reserve remaining marinade.

2. Pour reserved marinade into small saucepan; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.  

3. Heat grill to medium-high heat; grease grates well. Remove pork from marinade and shake off excess. Grill pork, turning once, for 6 to 8 minutes. Arrange pork on one side of grill. Turn off burner directly under pork; cook over indirect heat and basting with reserved marinade, for 12 to 15 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted into center registers 145°F. Let stand for 5 minutes. Slice thinly. 

4. Noodle Salad: Meanwhile, in large bowl, whisk together peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce, chili paste, sesame oil, brown sugar, ginger and garlic until smooth; add noodles, carrots, cabbage, red pepper and bean sprouts, tossing to coat evenly. Sprinkle with cilantro, green onions and peanuts. Serve with sliced pork.

Tip: Save some prep time by tossing cooked soba noodles with a store-bought coleslaw blend or broccoli slaw and prepared peanut dressing.
