Pork and Plum Sauce

Pork Tenderloin With Plum Sauce

Plum Sauce

1 garlic clove, minced fine
1 tablespoon of fresh ginger, minced
1/3 small onion, minced
1/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 cups water
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
 2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon crushed dried chili
5 plums, pitted & chopped
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1/3 tablespoon cornstarch

Thinking of having some friends round for dinner. Want to try
something other than pasta. Try this plum sauce it really is very
easy.  Now is the time to cook with plums they're now in season,   plentiful and
cheap. This is a wonderful fresh tangy sauce with a nice hint of Asia.
You could eat it with chicken, duck or tofu. To accompany it you may
like a nice crispy summer salad, maybe some fresh baby spinach.
An alternative is mashed potatoes and some steamed broccoli. This
really compliments it and is my personal favorite.

To start:

1 Place all 12 ingredients into a pot.
2 Bring to a boil then simmer for 30 minutes.
3 Blend it in a blender.
4 Simmer again until thickened to your liking.

For Pork tenderloin

Take a nice pork tenderloin and season generously with pepper. Roast it
in a preheated oven at 200c for 20 minutes or until cooked to your
liking. Be careful not to over cook or it will be very dry.
Alternatively pan fry in a small amount of oil at a medium heat for
15-20 minutes. Make sure to check it's cooked through at the largest
part of loin.
Drizzle with plum sauce and  enjoy.
