Ingredient

  • Pork tenderloin.
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce.
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar.
  • 1 tablespoon sugar.
  • 2 teaspoons minced gingerroot [This ingredient can be easily omitted if you don’t like ginger. Personally, I found this addition very interesting. Reminiscent of Chinese cooking, with the ginger root in it, it is added to the marinade to maintain a strong flavor of ginger flavor.]

Directions

  • Make 1-inch thick slices of pork tenderloin.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together in a small bowl until well combined.
  • Place the pork tenderloin slices into a large freezer bag and pour in enough of the marinade to coat each piece of meat evenly. Seal the bag and gently shake until all of the meat is coated in the marinade, making sure that it is completely coated with any extra marinade that has dripped out of the bag.
  • Place the bag in the freezer and allow it to chill for about 2 hours.
  • Take your pork out and let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before you cook it on a grill.
  • Cook each side of the tenderloin slice until nicely browned, turning once. If you don’t have access to a grill, place the meat in a slow cooker and let it cook on low for 6-7 hours, or until it becomes nice and tender.
  • Place the cooked meat on a plate and serve it with a side of rice or noodles, and don’t forget about the extra sauce that you have leftover!
