Seasoned Pork Tenderloin
Reduced-calorie pancake syrup
½ pinch, freshly ground
Uncooked lean pork tenderloin
2½ pound(s), use two 600-g (1¼ lb) pieces
- 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.
- 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.
