Hoisin Pork Steak

We eat a whole lot of chicken and pork tenderloin in our house.  Occasionally we have fish (I could totally eat more fish), but the majority of our entrees are the other two.  This pork recipe in particular is quick to put together, flavorful, and one of my co-workers made it for her family and they gave it a double thumbs up.  ENJOY!!

HOISIN PORK STEAK (with Stir Fry Veggies)
Cooking Light – Fresh, Food, Fast Weeknight Meals

1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/4 tsp salt
Cooking Spray
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper


1.  Slice pork tenderloin lengthwise, cutting to, but not through, other side.  Open halves, laying pork flat.  Place plastic wrap over pork; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet.  Cut pork crosswise into 4 steaks; sprinkle with salt.

2.  Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Coat pan with cooking spray.  Add pork; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until done.  Transfer pork to a plate.  Reduce heat to low.

3.  Combine vinegar and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.  Stir vinegar mixture into pan drippings; cook 1 minute.  Return pork to skillet; remove from heat.  Let stand 2 to 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, turning often.  Yield:  4 servings (serving size:  3 ounces pork and about 1 tablespoon sauce.)
