Affordable pork tenderloin is the perfect canvas for the Chinese-inspired flavors of spicy ginger and green onions (a.k.a. scallions). Serve over rice or noodles with steamed vegetables.
- 1 (1 ¼ lb) pork tenderloin
- 1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 bunch green onions, very thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 3 tbsp hoisin sauce, divided, plus more for serving, if desired
- Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the pork tenderloin on prepared pan and season all over with salt and pepper. Roast 12 min.
- Meanwhile, in a small pot, combine the ginger, green onions, and oil. Cook on medium 6–8 min., until green onions are tender, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic. Cook 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Season with salt to taste.
- Carefully remove pork tenderloin from oven and brush with 2 tbsp hoisin sauce. Continue roasting 8–10 min., until cooked through. Reset oven to broil on high. Brush pork with remaining 1 tbsp hoisin sauce and broil 2–3 min., until golden-brown. Let pork rest 5 min. before thinly slicing. Serve with ginger–green onion sauce spooned on top and additional hoisin, if desired.
