{teriyaki pork + pineapple salsa}

Last week I posted a picture of our dinner // “when you try something new and straight up nail it + your kid loves it too.”  Remember that one?  Well, I’m sharing the recipe today.  This Teriyaki Pork with Pineapple Salsa is to bomb not to share and document.

I grabbed every ingredient for this dish at Trader Joes’s in Davis.  My love for Trader Joe’s is deep…remember this post {20 trader joe’s products i’m obsessed with} where I told you all about it?  I visit Trader Joe’s about once a week.  I follow them on instagram.  It’s almost like my LIKEtoKNOW.it double tapping problem….but, with food.  My next favorite thing to buy + post + talk about.  TJ’s will post about a new item and the comment section fills up with peeps raving about it.  So, obvi I gotta go get it and try it.  Just like the J.Crew new arrivals.  lol!

Sorry – I got side tracked.  When TJ’s + J.Crew come up and just can’t shut up 🙂

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 cup Trader Joes’s Soyaki
  • 1 pouch (2 cups) Trader Joes’s frozen brown rice
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple, diced
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 orange bell pepper, seeded + chopped
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed

 

Instructions:

Place pork tenderloin in a ziplock bag with 1/2 cup Soyaki.

In a large bowl, add tomatoes + pineapple + red onion + cilantro + bell pepper stir gently to combine.  Squeeze juice from 1/2 of lime over salsa and stick in the refrigerator to chill.

 

Two cooking methods for the pork:

Remove pork and discard the soyaki marinade.

Grilling method –  (my personal favorite)

Brush grill with oil to prevent sticking.  Grill on each side for about 15 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 145 degrees.  Making sure all sides get nice grill marks.

Oven method – 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place pork on a baking sheet and cook roughly 20 minutes per pound or until meat thermometer reads 145 degrees.

Allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.

While pork is resting.  Steam asparagus for 5 minutes.

Place 1 frozen Trader Joe’s brown rice pouch in microwave for 3 minutes.  Regular bagged brown rice takes FOREVER, so this is a maj time saver and tastes great.  Squeeze a little lime juice over rice.

I plated everything on one serving dish and served family style.

You guys HAVE to try this easy week night meal.  It’s healthy + tasty + easy to prepare.  You’re kids will dig it too.  Huge bonus points!!!

Leftovers were pretty delish too, I might add 🙂

Each serving – 1/2 cup rice + a few slices of the pork + add a heaping pile of the pineapple salsa + 5 asparagus spears and a slice of lime.

About 360 calories per serving.
