This recipe was developed by me for Smithfield, who I have an ongoing relationship with. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for helping to support the brands that I love!
Well, friends. We’ve reached another huge milestone with the kids.
Trevor no longer refers to every.single.meat.in.existence as chicken.
Not quite on the same level as potty training or being able to buckle themselves, I know. But omg, it sort of drove me crazy.
When I got a huge box of marinated pork, though – and made a few recipes – he totally got it.
I’m beyond excited to be working with Smithfield this year!
They’ve got three distinct cuts of pork – tenderloin, loin filet, and sirloin – to suit several cooking styles and dishes. Slow marinated in delicious seasonings including Peppercorn & Garlic, Teriyaki, Garlic & Herb, Mesquite and Rosemary & Olive Oil, there’s something for everyone. I’ve used all of them. Sometimes grilled, sometimes roasted, and sometimes sautéed. Always fantastic!
Because their Fresh Pork is pre-marinated, it saves time in the kitchen and perfect for cooking a simple, but extremely delicious meal.
It was tough to decide which to highlight first. But in the end, the Teriyaki won out. You all know how much I adore Asian flavors.
This dish is crazy easy, but doesn’t skimp on taste. You must make it. So so tender. Like butter!
Seared Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin with Wasabi-Gingered Soy Sauce
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1/3 cup low sodium chicken stock
- 2 tablespoons dry sherry
- 2 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon wasabi paste
- 1 (18 ounce) Smithfield Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 3 scallions , chopped small
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, chicken stock, sherry, sugar, ginger, and wasabi; set aside.
- Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil; swirl to coat. Add pork to pan; sauté 4 minutes. Turn pork over; place pan in oven for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145°. Remove pork from pan; place on a cutting board. Let stand 5 minutes.
- Being very careful - the handle on the pan will be HOT! - place pan back on the stove over medium heat. Pour in the soy sauce mixture and cook for about a minute. Stir in the scallions.
- Cut the pork into thin slices. Divide onto plates and top with the sauce. Serve immediately.
Reader Questions and Reviews
This looks delicious, I am in England and we don’t get these meats, can I just marinade my pork tenderloin over night with teriyaki sauce?
That would probably work!
Oh my gosh this sounds scrumptious! I’m definitely going to have to check out these Smithfield products!
Now this is how I like my pork! That sauce…I can tell I will be licking my fingers with this one! Pinned!
WASABI!!!!! I really believe it should be used on everything. The sauce for these sounds drinkable.
pork in one meat that everyone in my family will eat – even Stella will take a few bites, I really should make it more often, and your sauce looks divine!!
not gluten free! Soy sauce has wheat in it, and I cannot confirm but if the pork has a teriyaki marinade that probably also has some soy sauce/non gluten free ingredient as well. This however does look delicious and I only say this because on foodgawker, the initial caption says gluten and dairy free.
Hi Jenn – yes, I realized that after I published it. All reference to gluten-free has been removed.
This will make for an amazing weeknight supper! Yum!
Oooh, totally jealous of the box of pork! I’m obbbbsessed with their marinated tenderloins. I haven’t tried this one though, totally looking for it next time I’m at the store!
Your first photo had me at hello! I love everything about this dish! Thanks for sharing!
That sauce sounds amazing! I love wasabi so much :)
Yum! My kids love Teriyaki! AND Matthew still calls everything chicken…beef, pork, turkey…it’s funny. I’ll try this on him and see if he changes his tune. haha.
Amy, I LOVE this!!! oh my gawd. . Wasabi Gingered Soy Sauce?!!! Pinned and totally going to try this!!!
Oh Alice, trust me…if we were neighbors, I would never leave your house!
I’ve never bought marinated packaged meat, but this looks really good. This one goes on my to do list.
Mom, you and Dad will love it. This is right up your alley with the Asian theme.
I love the Smithfield line. I buy their pork chops and ribs all the time. I’ve never used their pre-marinated cuts though. Will definitely check them out – I want to make this so badly. Thanks, Amy!
I absolutely love their product line, as well. So happy to be working with them. You’ll love this dish! Thanks, Deb!
Great photo! That looks absolutely awesome. :)
Thanks, Melissa!! Some foods do all the work for me :)
this looks amazing!
Thank you, Lisa!
Sometimes I think pork can be a little boring (if not done well), but this looks anything but boring! It looks so flavorful and delicious!
Same thing can be said about chicken. But sometimes all you need are a few seasonings and a simple sauce, and boom! This definitely fits the bill!
