I love Chinese take out so when I successfully make an asian inspired recipe to satisfy my cravings, I am one happy gal. Some of my other favorite asian inspired recipes are Grilled Bourbon Chicken, Pepper Steak and Honey Teriyaki Drumsticks or Salmon.

Even if you have no intentions of celebrating the Chinese New Year, this is a tasty way to make a pork tenderloin if you are looking for something different.

Could you make this with chicken? Sure! This would be fabulous over a chicken breast if pork is not your thing.

I served this with my own coconut rice creation that my husband loves (recipe coming soon) and he literally cleaned his plate! You could also serve this over steamed jasmine rice for a simple side dish. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp garlic salt

  1. This is my new favorite way to prepare and serve pork tenderloin!!! So incredibly simple and delicious. The glaze for the pork seemed like an awful lot so before I brushed it on, I spooned some out into a separate bowl for dipping. There was still plenty left for the glaze. I knew my kids probably wouldn’t care for the mango salsa but love sweet thai chili sauce so figured they’d be happy with the extra sauce. I was right. But my husband and I loved the mango salsa! I left out the jalapeño because I can’t handle it, but I felt it had just enough bite with the raw garlic. My husband added some heat by adding habanero pineapple hot sauce to his. I served with jasmine rice. This one is a keeper for sure. Thank you, Gina!

  2. Per usual, excellent, easy and delicious. I served this with green beans, broccoli and rice noodles. I WILL make again!!

  3. The mango salsa really makes this recipe–don’t skip it! Delicious as usual, Gina!

  4. Really good. Added some diced red bell to the salsa which was nice. Pork had great flavor and was easy to put together. I served with coconut rice. Family really liked it!

  5. Gina – I don’t think I would have made it on WW without your recipe inspirations to keep me going. My husband and I are amazed that such flavor and variety are low points. I’ve been following you since January 2021 and bought one of your cookbooks and as of today I am -30lbs.
    I can’t thank you enough. You helped me change my life. Making this pork recipe tonight!
    Forever grateful. I am a lifetime follower.

  6. I am making this now… couldn’t find any mango either as out of season but made salsa with frozen mango.. just left iut a couple hours to defrost and is very good

  7. Love this pork tenderloin and especially the salsa.  Very simple and delicious combination of spicy and sweet! Served with rice and green beans. Will make again!

  8. This is delicious. Wonder if it would be just as good with salmon?

  9. My husband raved. Easy to put together. Served with stir fried veggies and couscous. Think I’d reduce the garlic salt by half to reduce the sodium. Thanks. 😁

  10. Yum!! The mango salsa is key.

  11. I’d love to know how we could make this in the airfryer!

  12. I made this last night (just the tenderloin, not the salsa since I couldn’t find any mango) and it was AMAZING! I couldn’t believe the calories were so low. We’ll be making this regularly. My fiance said it was the best dinner I’ve ever made! Thanks Gina!

  13. Another hit!! So easy, so delicious! Didn’t have ground ginger so used fresh ginger and it turned out great. Thanks again Gina!!

  14. This recipe is excellent! I have now made it several times and it’s one of those that gets easier and easier to make. I usually double the dried ginger and garlic and it’s great with or without the mango salsa.
