Our team of chefs continually scour the planet looking for new and exciting glazes to tempt your taste buds. They've topped their previous efforts (but remain ever-so-humble) with the strong sweet-sour flavor of this tamarind glaze, which pairs with pork for a marriage made in heaven. And our same team of chefs have spent hours pondering the mysteries of vegetables and, in their meditations, came up this carrot-cilantro-bok choy medley that comes second only to the pork for flavor. Our chefs are amazing. Have we mentioned they sometimes write the descriptions?

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan
  • 1 Large Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" slices on an angle. Stem cilantro, mince stems, and coarsely chop leaves. Remove any discolored outer leaves from bok choy and trim ends. Cut stems into ¼" slices and coarsely chop leaves. Pat pork tenderloin dry. On a separate cutting board, slice tenderloin into eight medallions ½-¾" thick. Season both sides of medallions with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.

  • Step 2 - Sear the Pork

    Sear the Pork

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add medallions to hot pan and cook until well-browned on both sides, 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer medallions to a plate. Pork will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 3 - Start the Vegetables

    Start the Vegetables

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add carrot to hot pan and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add ½ cup coconut milk, 2 Tbsp. water, ginger, and cilantro stems. Bring to a simmer, add bok choy stems, and cover. Cook until carrots are tender and coconut milk is slightly thickened, 4-6 minutes. While vegetables cook, glaze pork.

  • Step 4 - Glaze the Pork

    Glaze the Pork

    Return pan used to sear pork to medium-high heat. Add tamarind, sweet chili sauce, and 1 Tbsp. water to hot pan and stir. Bring to a simmer and return pork medallions and any accumulated juices to pan. Cook, flipping medallions occasionally, until pork is glazed and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner.

  • Step 5 - Finish the Vegetables

    Finish the Vegetables

    When carrots are tender, add bok choy leaves to pan with other vegetables. Stir and cook until leaves are just wilted, 1-2 minutes. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish

    Plate the Dish

    Place vegetables on a plate and place pork medallions next to them. Drizzle pork with any remaining glaze from pan and garnish vegetables with hazelnuts and cilantro leaves.
