Ingredients

Marinade

2 tbsp. reduced-sodium/lite soy sauce

1 tbsp. sweet Asian chili sauce

2 tsp. chopped garlic

1 tsp. chopped ginger

1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

Pork

One 1-lb. raw pork tenderloin, trimmed of excess fat

Sauce

2 tsp. cornstarch

3 tbsp. sweet Asian chili sauce

1 1/2 tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar

1 tsp. chopped garlic

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

2 tbsp. thinly sliced scallions

Optional topping: extra thinly sliced scallions

Directions

In a small bowl, combine marinade ingredients; stir until uniform. Place pork and marinade in a large sealable plastic bag; remove as much air as possible and seal. Gently knead marinade into meat through the bag. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Bring a large oven-safe skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to high heat on the stove. Add pork and discard excess marinade. Evenly sear meat, rotating it occasionally, until dark on all sides, about 4 minutes total.

Place skillet in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Carefully flip pork. Bake until pork center reaches 145 degrees, 5 - 10 more minutes.

Remove pork from the skillet and let rest for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make the sauce, combine cornstarch with 1/4 cup water in a small nonstick pot. Stir to dissolve. Add remaining sauce ingredients except scallions and stir well. Set heat to medium. Stirring frequently, cook until sauce has thickened, 6 - 8 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in scallions.

Slice pork, and serve with sauce!
