  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of excess fat
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon salt-free lemon pepper
  • ½ cup spring onion jelly, or apricot or orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (sweet rice wine)


Step 1:

Slice the pork into four pieces and season with the lemon pepper.

Step 2:

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat.

Step 3:

Add the pork and cook 4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer inserted into the pork registers 160°F (the meat will be slightly pink).

Step 4:

Add the jelly or preserves and mirin to the skillet; stir to make a glaze, about 1 minute. Spoon the glaze over the pork.

To round out the meal, cook some brown rice and broccoli or other green vegetable of choice.
