A delicious spicy sauce highlighted with Asian flavors accompanies pork tenderloin in this easy recipe.
cup stir-fry sauce
cup regular (not spicy) barbecue sauce
teaspoon crushed red pepper
pork tenderloins (about 3/4 lb each)
cups frozen whole green beans
cup sliced almonds
Heat oven to 450°F. Line shallow roasting pan with foil. In small bowl, mix stir-fry sauce, barbecue sauce, honey and crushed red pepper until well blended. Reserve 1/2 cup sauce for serving.
Place pork in pan; tucking small ends under for even cooking. Insert meat thermometer to tip is in thickest part of pork. Brush pork with about 1/4 cup of the remaining sauce.
Bake uncovered 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Arrange green beans around pork; drizzle green beans with sauce. Sprinkle beans with almonds. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, brushing pork occasionally with drippings, until thermometer reads 155°F and beans are almost tender. Cover pork with foil and let stand 10 to 15 minutes or until thermometer reads 160°F. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5°F, and pork will be easier to carve.)
Serve pork with green beans and reserved 1/2 cup sauce.
Kick up the heat or kick it down by adjusting the crushed red pepper to the tongue-tingling level your family enjoys. Check out the variety of stir-fry sauces, too; some are hot, some are sweeter and some are traditional in flavor.
