Pork Essentials: Orange Marmalade Tenderloin

Andy Anderson !


This is a simple dish that packs a lot of flavor. The secret ingredient is Ponzu sauce… this is what I would define as a lite soy sauce with heavy notes of lemon. I think it really made this dish.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
