Instructions
  1. Preheat a large cast iron skillet on medium high heat. Add sesame oil. Brown ground pork.
  2. Cook the black rice using a medium sauce pan, according to the package directions. This should take approximately 30 minutes for one cup of rice. We did this while cooking the lettuce wrap ingredients. Saved tons of time!
  3. After the pork is fully browned, remove from pan, leaving juices. There won't be much as the pork is very lean. You may have to add a little more oil at this point.
  4. Mise en place (cut and prepare) all your veggies so that they are diced in equal sizes.
  5. Drain and quarter those yummy water chestnuts.
  6. Sautee the veggies in the hot skillet until tender. Adding the ginger, garlic, and water chestnuts after your veggies are tender. This is a perfect time to season with salt according to your taste.
  7. Add the pork back into the veggie mixture. Stirring well. Pour the teriyaki and soy sauces over the mixture. Continue to stir until heated through.
  8. Using a small ramekin or other small bowl, fill to the top with the rice and carefully invert onto the plate to form those pretty little mounds of rice. Top with a drizzle of sesame oil and a few black sesame seeds. Serve the pork teriyaki mixture on a platter in the middle of the table with the lettuce on the side for a crowd...or fill in a few individual lettuce cups for each person. Whatever you prefer!

Soy Ginger Miso Pork Tenderloin with Daikon Slaw

Soy Ginger Miso Pork Tenderloin with Daikon Slaw

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.

Daikon Slaw

  • 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

Soy Ginger Miso Marinade

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!
