"I made this up one night with garlic mashed potatoes and my husband made me swear to include it in the rotation. It originated from a marinade my mother had for moose meat, but the lime and chili garlic sauce adds a fresh twist. Warning: I didn't measure; it's all approximations to your taste!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

My boyfriend and I LOVED this recipe! I marinated it for 4 hours, and used pork chops instead tenderloin strips. Then, I heated up some of the marinade and put it over mashed potatoes and the pork chops. We will definitely be making this again! :)
Ginger Lime Pork Tenderloin Haiku: "Followed exactly, all the great flavors were lost. Marinate longer?" I stayed true to the recipe, and marinated my pork tenderloin for easily 4+ hours, but we couldn't really detect any of the lime or ginger; mostly soy sauce unfortunately.
This recipe really makes for tender pork when it is low-fat and not marbled. I didn't select the recipe but did the cooking, so I was doubtful about all the sugar - but it is really needed because of the mild almost bitter bite, which is just delicious - and could have been served to us on a plate at a high end restaurant the flavors were so layered. With several simple vegetables served all around it, this pork just dominated the plate and ... luckily we had leftovers to serve as slices with sweet apple slices the next day.
Great recipe, very easy to do. Hubby and I devoured it last night! Will cut marinade amount in half next time as it was too much for one tenderloin. Really appreciate not having to turn on my oven in hot Florida.
This was a good little recipe. We paired it with egg noodles and we turned the marinade into a sauce instead of tossing it by boiling it down and adding a cornstarch slurry.
There was a little too much lime for us, so I will probably only squeeze half of one next time. Also, I didn't have chile-garlic powder like it called for. I should have added more garlic in that case.
All and all a good recipe. Plenty of room to play but a solid base.
I really enjoyed this recipe. I made exactly as directed except after tasting I added 3 more dashes of chile garlic sauce. I marinated mine for almost 6 hours and served this with rice and broccoli. I also poured a little of the pan juices over it for extra flavor.
