Ingredients:

  • 2 pork tenderloins (1 1/2 pounds total)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 c. hoisin sauce
  • 1 c. jasmine rice
  • 2 tbsp. Ponzu (available in the Asian section of the grocery store)
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil

  • 1/3 c. roasted peanuts, chopped

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
