Who needs a fattening Easter ham? The spices in this low-fat pork tenderloin make it taste just as good! Marinate it overnight for an even deeper flavour.


Low-calorie pancake syrup

½ cup(s)

Dry mustard

1 tsp(s)

Ground cloves

1 tsp(s)

Ground ginger

1 tsp(s)

Table salt

1 tsp(s)

Ground cinnamon

½ tsp(s)

Black pepper

½ pinch(es), freshly ground

Uncooked lean pork tenderloin

2½ pound(s), use two 600-g (1¼ lb) pieces


  1. Combine syrup, mustard, cloves, ginger, salt, cinnamon, and pepper in a large zip-close plastic bag. Trim pork of all visible fat and cut each tenderloin in half width-wise. Add tenderloins to plastic bag, squeeze out air and seal bag; turn to coat tenderloins. Place bag on a plate and refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat broiler. Place tenderloins in a roasting pan and pour marinade over them. Broil 12.5 cm (5 in) from heat until pork reaches an internal temperature of 70°C (160°F), about 6 minutes per side. Let stand at room temperature 5 minutes before slicing. Yields about 115 g (4 oz) of meat per serving.
