Asian glazed pork tenderloin with roasted asparagus and finger potatoes


Serving size 2

1 Pork tenderloin
Marinade:
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 orange, juiced
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon ground ginger
4 clove garlic, diced
1 green onion, chopped
Crushed red pepper, pinch
Pepper

Asparagus:
1 Bundle asparagus
2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
salt & pepper
olive oil to coat

Finger potatoes:
about 20 finger potatoes, cut in half
2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
salt & pepper
olive oil to coat

Sauce:
Cornstarch
water

For pork tenderloin, combine marinade in bag and place pork in. Marinate over night. Preheat oven to 350. Remove pork from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature. While pork is coming to temperature combine all ingredients for potatoes and place on left side of a cookie sheet. Roast potatoes in oven for 20 minutes. Remove cookie sheet and place pork in center. Combine all ingredients for asparagus and place on right side of pork. Roast uncovered for 40 minutes. While pork is roasting place marinade in small sauce pan and simmer on low for 35 minutes whisking often. At this point mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 3 tablespoons cold water. Slowly add mixture a little at a time until sauce thickens enough to coat a spoon. Allow pork to rest about 5 minutes then slice thinly on an angle. Top with a drizzle of your sauce. Pork will be soft enough to cut with a fork or butter knife.

Shrimp fried rice



2 Cups rice (that is measured uncooked) Cook according to box
2 Pounds peeled, deveined, uncooked shrimp, cut in half
5 cloves garlic, chopped
4 Tbsp Onion, Chopped
1 Cup Peas & Carrots (frozen or can)
1/2 Stick butter
Soy sauce to taste
Salt & Pepper to taste

Cook rice according to directions then set out uncovered allowing it to cool and dry a little. In saute pan melt butter, add shrimp and half of garlic and saute until shrimp is done (probably a good idea to taste it while cooking for doneness). Remove shrimp and set aside leaving butter and juices in pan. Add rice to pan with garlic, onion, and soy sauce. Cook over medium low heat. Don't stir it a lot, allowing rice to get fried and change colors to a slight brown. When rice is almost done add in shrimp, peas and carrots and toss until all is heated through.
