Cooking Pork Tenderloin - Easy Dinner RecipeGarlic Ginger Pork Tenderloin Dinner

3/4 pound pork tenderloin
1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon fresh ginger root, minced
seasoned salt
1 large onion, sliced thin
2 small yellow squash or zucchini squash
2 medium size tomatoes
1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
Few drops balsamic vinegar (optional)
kosher salt

  1. Preheat the broiler
  2. Combine the ginger and garlic. Pierce the tenderloin all over the surface forming little pockets. Rub the ginger and garlic mixture into these pockets. Season the outside well with seasoning salt.
  3. Place onto a broiler pan. Slice the onions, squash and tomatoes for broiling. Slice the squash in half lengthwise and the tomatoes crosswise. Slice the onion into slices and place on the broiler pan, cut side up, around the pork tenderloin.
  4. Brush the onions, squash and tomatoes with oil, then sprinkle with kosher salt. Optional: sprinkle the tomatoes with a little balsamic vinegar.
  5. Broil 4 - 6 inches from the heat for 8 minutes.
  6. Turn the pork tenderloin over. Broil for another 6 minutes.
  7. When the pork is done, transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Cut the pork into thin slices and arrange on dinner plates with the onion, squash and tomato. Enjoy!

You can roast any other vegetables you desire with this easy dinner recipe as well. Use sliced peppers, leftover boiled or baked potatoes or sweet potatoes.

This easy dinner recipe for pork tenderloin prepared is very with garlic and ginger, but it is delicious! It is worth the effort to make the pockets for the ginger and garlic. The spiciness penetrates the meat. If you don't want to be bothered making the pockets, then coat the meat with the spices on the outside. I prefer Lawry's Seasoned Salt for coating the outside, give it a good sprinkle. The salty spiciness makes this dish.

You can prepare a pork loin this way as well, but it will need to cook much longer. Usually, when preparing a loin, I prepare it this way, then put it on the grill for about 30 - 45 minutes or until done.

I hope you enjoy this easy dinner recipe and that it will inspire you to try broiling other vegetables and meats for an easy and quick meal.
