Food Group Servings
- 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)
Slice the pork into four pieces and season with the lemon pepper.
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat.
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).
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.
