If you are looking for something new and light that is quick and easy for any day of the week…look no further. Soy Ginger Miso Pork Tenderloin with Daikon Slaw is where it is at.
My new challenge is to figure out how to incorporate new recipes using my Johnson’s Backyard Gardens CSA delivery box. Some of these veggies I have not previously used or cooked with before. So, admittedly it can be a bit intimidating. But I am definitely excited about the challenge. Keeping the ingredients simple, I was able to create a wonderfully fresh slaw from three of the items that were in my box this week. Daikon radish, carrots, cilantro. The green onions, red bell pepper,and purple cabbage I purchased from my local market.
The shredder attachment for the food processor was my friend for this recipe and is a fantastic time saver! And the beauty of this recipe is you can adjust the ratio of veggies up or down according to the amount of mouths that you need to feed and/or your own personal preference.
- 2 cups shredded carrot
- 2 cups shredded daikon radish
- 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
- 1/2 finely sliced red bell pepper
- 2 sliced green onions
- 1 cup picked cilantro
Don’t the colors look gorgeous?
The Ginger Miso Dressing that I served over the slaw is simple, simple, simple. Just whisk the ingredients together, toss with the shredded veggies, and refrigerate until ready to serve!
Ginger Miso Dressing
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 tsp. dried Miso soup mix
- 1 tbsp. finely grated ginger root
Next, it was time to marinate the pork tenderloin. I was fortunate enough to have my local butcher prepare these for me as the regular meat counter did not have exactly what I was looking for. Never be afraid to ask! These weighed approximately 3 pounds in total.
Soy Ginger Miso Marinade
- 1 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1- .7 ounce package dried Miso Soup
- 1 tbsp. ginger root , peeled and sliced
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
Once you have mixed the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl, add the pork tenderloin directly to it. Cover it and allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Then it is time to grill these beauties! We grilled these tenderloins until the internal temperatures were right at 160 degrees F.
Allow the pork tenderloin to rest for at least 3 minutes, then slice and serve with the slaw. You will be amazed at the amount of flavor this simple marinade add to the meat. Enjoy!
