  • Grilled Pineapple Pork

  • Ingredients

  • Center Cut Pork Tenderloin Strips

  • Island Soyaki Marinade (from Trader Joe's)

  • Dole Pineapple Juice (8 oz. can)

  • Pineapple Slaw

  • Ingredients

  • 12 oz bag of White Shredded Cabbage

  • Fresh Pineapple, chopped into 1" square chunks

  • one

    Orange Bell Pepper, julienne (thinly sliced)

  • one

    Fuji Apple (or other crisp apple), julienne (thinly sliced, leave skin on)

  • 2

    tbsp Miso Soy Dressing (2 tablespoons at first, reserve balance)


Pork: Marinate the pork tenderloins in soy-pineapple marinate for 2-3 hrs before grilling. Mix Island Soyaki Marinade with pineapple juice in a one-to-one ratio. I like to put one tenderloin in a large zip-lock bag with the marinade. Seal it up and pop the bags into a large salad bowl and refrigerate. I buy these at Costco, so you will get four strips at a time. Or you can make your own using these Ingredients: Soy sauce, Sugar, Pineapple juice, Vinegar, Sesame Seeds, Fresh Garlic, Dried Onion, Fresh Ginger, Garlic Granules, Onion Powder, Ginger Powder, Sesame Oil (just a drizzle). Grill the pork tenderloins on very high heat to sear. Turn quickly, at least once every 5 minutes to give all sides a nice char. Lower the temperature (or move to a moderately hot section of your grill) and cook for about 15 minutes more. Turn often. The internal temperature should be about 140 degrees. Take off and let rest about 20 minutes before cutting into it to keep it moist and juicy. It will continue to cook and will wind up at about 145 to 150 degrees. Slaw: Mix well and refrigerate overnight. What makes this salad pretty is that most of the vegetables are chopped into the same size julienne sticks. Hold back on the dressing. If it needs more moisture, you can add a little more before serving. (I like to use Galeos® World's Best Miso Toasted Sesame Seed Dressing. This has a very low fat content. It is available at the larger chain grocery stores in the produce section.) Makes 6 - 8 servings of slaw. Layer 3 to 4 slices of the pork on top of the slaw. Serve with pineapple spears
