Ingredients

1/4 cup coarsely chopped green onions

1/4 cup coarsely chopped shallots

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup pineapple juice

1/4 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh ginger

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons Emeril's Asian Essence

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon crushed red pepper

2 pork tenderloins (about 2 pounds total)

Sesame Snow Peas, recipe follows

Sesame Snow Peas:

2 teaspoons sesame oil

1 pound snow peas, cleaned

1 tablespoon black and white sesame seeds

1 lemon, juiced and zested

Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions

  1. Combine all the ingredients except the tenderloins in a food processor and pulse several times to puree. Put the tenderloins in a large plastic storage bag and pour in the marinade. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Heat a large nonstick ovenproof skillet over high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the tenderloins and sear, turning to ensure even browning, about 4 minutes. Transfer to the oven and cook for 18 to 20 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 145 degrees F. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Alternatively, heat a grill to medium-hot. Grill the tenderloins, turning several times, for 25 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 145 degrees F. Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes.

Sesame Snow Peas:

  1. In a large saute pan over high heat, add sesame oil and heat. Add the snow peas and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add the sesame seeds and toss well. Add the lemon juice and zest and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley.
