Ginger-Honey Pork Tenderloin {with Korean Slaw}

You only need 5 ingredients for this pork recipe!  Super simple but super delicious.  You could totally grill this on an outside grill or you could use an inside grill.  For a weeknight, it was much easier to pull out my little appliance as opposed to firing up the grill.  I don’t fire up the grill – I leave that to the man of the house.

Throughout the grilling process, the pork is slathered with a sauce made up of ginger, honey, soy sauce (or tamari) and lemon juice.

I loved how the honey became sticky and gave the pork so much flavor.  It’s amazing how four ingredients can really add personality to a rather dull piece of meat.

The slaw is a recipe from Gwenyth’s cookbook, It’s All Good.  In the mix, cabbage (I used purple for some color), romaine lettuce, minced red onion, lime juice, green onions, olive oil, a smidge of fish sauce and black sesame seeds.

I had never used romaine lettuce in a slaw and I really enjoyed this mix.  I did need a little sprinkling of salt after plating.  It was just missing a little something-something.

I love how the sweetness of the pork married with the bright, almost-tart slaw.

Grilling isn’t just for summer time and the outdoors.

Though with the warmer weather we’re expecting this weekend, the grill might just have to be fired up.

Happy Friday, y’all!
