INGREDIENTS

  • 1lb pork tenderloin, excess fat trimmed
  • 7 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp grated fresh garlic
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • olive oil for cooking
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine ginger, honey, lemon juice, garlic, soy sauce, cayenne, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl.
  2. Add half the marinade ingredients to a large ziplock bag and add pork tenderloin.  Seal bag and marinate for a few hours or overnight.  Pour leftover marinade into an airtight container and keep refrigerated until ready to roast the pork.
  3. Line a baking sheet or baking dish with a double layer of aluminum foil and set aside.  Remove leftover marinade container from the refrigerator and preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  4. Heat a large skillet with a bit of olive oil over MED-HIGH heat, remove excess marinade and sear pork tenderloin very briefly on all sides until lightly golden brown.
  5. Transfer tenderloin to prepared baking sheet/dish and roast for 10-15 minutes, until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the tenderloin registers 133 F degrees.
  6. Brush with leftover marinade and broil on HIGH for 1-2 minutes until golden.  Remove from oven, cover with foil and let rest a few minutes.  Pork will continue carry-over cooking and should end up between 140-145 F degrees with a blush of pink.
  7. Brush marinade over the top of pork tenderloin and sprinkle with parsley if desired.Slice into 1/2 inch thick slices and serve.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Wash the asparagus and trim the bottom inch of so of each stalk to get rid of the tough, fibrous part. A good way of telling where you should cut is to bend one stalk of asparagus toward the bottom until it snaps off. Then lay it next to the rest of the asparagus and cut them all to be the same length.
  3. Pat the asparagus dry and spread it out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle generously with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Give the asparagus a toss to coat it evenly in the olive oil and seasoning, then roast it in the oven for 8 to10 minutes, depending on thickness, just until tender.
  4. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the garlic, Parmesan cheese, and lemon juice and give it another toss before serving.
