If you are looking for a new idea for dinner tonight, this Asian Pork Tenderloin recipe will not disappoint. The recipe uses the flavors of Southeast Asia and it is a taste sensation! We used a delicious homemade peanut sauce that uses one of our favorite ingredient combos: coconut milk, garlic, and lime.
Although we used pork tenderloin in this recipe, you could easily substitute the pork for chicken or even beef. The sauce is very versatile and we think you might be making it over and over again. You could even use it for a dipping sauce for veggies for the kids or with grilled meats in the summer. Ready to get cooking? Our easy recipe for Asian Pork Tenderloin is below!
