Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup pineapple juice

  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped green onions

  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped shallots

  • ¼ cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves

  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh ginger

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons Emeril's Asian Essence

  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper

  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 2 pounds total)

  • Sesame Snow Peas, recipe follows

  • SESAME SNOW PEAS:

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil

  • 1 pound snow peas, cleaned

  • 1 tablespoon black and white sesame seeds

  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions

Combine all the ingredients except the tenderloins in a food processor and pulse several times to puree. Put the tenderloins in a large plastic storage bag and pour in the marinade. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat a large nonstick ovenproof skillet over high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the tenderloins and sear, turning to ensure even browning, about 4 minutes. Transfer to the oven and cook for 18 to 20 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 145 degrees F. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Alternatively, heat a grill to medium-hot. Grill the tenderloins, turning several times, for 25 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 145 degrees F. Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes. In a large saute pan over high heat, add sesame oil and heat. Add the snow peas and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add the sesame seeds and toss well. Add the lemon juice and zest and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley
