Asian Pork Tenderloin and Pineapple Salad will quickly become a family favorite. This is just one of those meals which everyone seems to love.

To start off, I am a huge salad eater !  Love all kinds and types and I am always open to trying out new salads either at a restaurant or making them myself at home.

My family would most definitely not see a salad without any kind of meat, chicken or seafood as a complete meal. Whether it is for lunch or dinner, there has to be meat in it !

One of my favorite meats to use in a salad (besides Chicken) is Pork Tenderloin. The Pork always, but always turn out tender and juicy, no matter how one cooks it. I have to say that I am one of those people who can really mess up a great cut of meat, but I have never been let down by cooking Pork Tenderloin.

You can serve the Asian Pork Tenderloin and Pineapple Salad any way you wish. Either by arranging the ingredients as I did, or you can toss the whole lot together and serve it that way.  If you prefer the latter, cut the Pork into smaller bite sized pieces.

A Small tip – add more Salad Leaves to a salad (any salad) on a hot day, as Salad Leaves are said to be a natural body coolant – works for me, but that might just be because I want to believe it, especially during a heatwave !

After you sear the pork and put the glaze on, how long approximately do you cook it?Can't wait to give this a try. Sounds terrific and I've never done a pork tenderloin. Thanks for sharing

Lexy, pork tenderloin cooks very quickly, I'd say between 12 - 15 minutes of simmering, turning the meat once and it would be done - it should have a light brown color with clear juices when you slice the tenderloin.
