Pork tenderloin is a lovely, lean piece of meat and a nice alternative to chicken. In this recipe, it is flavored with soy sauce, ginger, and molasses. Crushed red pepper flakes add a hint of heat, while rice vinegar balances out the sweetness of the sauce. Peas pair nicely with the Asian inspired pork, but if you prefer broccoli or green beans, substitute those for the peas. For the recipe, read more.
