A note about serious food allergies

Get your grass skirt and coconut bra out of the closet (what, you don't have those hanging next to your winter coat?) and say aloha to this low-cal, low-carb powerhouse. Pork medallions marinate in a sweet combination of teriyaki, sesame, and, of course, pineapple and are cooked with the added heat of that hip hot sauce, Sriracha. Paired with a crisp sesame slaw, you'll forget you're on the snowy mainland as soon as you take one bite.

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and cut 2" pieces from green tops of green onions. Slice pieces into very thin strips and place in a small bowl of cold water to "curl" into a garnish (optional). Trim and thinly slice remaining green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Rinse pork tenderloin and pat dry. On a separate cutting board, slice tenderloin into 8-10 medallions, ½"-¾" thick. Season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.

    Marinate the Pork

    In a large mixing bowl, combine teriyaki glaze, white portions of green onions, half the sesame oil (reserve remaining for slaw dressing), half the rice vinegar (reserve remaining for slaw dressing), and half the pineapple juice (reserve remaining for glaze). Place pork medallions in marinade, toss to coat evenly, and let sit 10 minutes. While pork marinates, make dressing.

    Cook the Pork

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add pork to hot pan and cook until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove pork to a plate. Add marinade, remaining pineapple juice, and half the Sriracha to pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until a sticky glaze forms, 3-4 minutes. Taste, and add remaining Sriracha if desired. Remove from burner, return pork and any accumulated juices to pan, and flip to coat.
