spicy-sweet pork tenderloin

This was a new recipe we found in a magazine. It was very good! A nice change from broiling or baking.

Spicy-Sweet Pork Tenderloin

1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon bottled minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut crosswise into 12 (3/4-inch-thick) slices
1/3 cup bottled salsa
1 tablespoon seedless raspberry preserves

Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Flatten each pork piece to 1/2-inch thickness using your fingertips. Add pork to pan; spoon soy sauce mixture evenly over pork slices. Cook 3 minutes or until browned. Turn pork over; cook 3 minutes or until done. Remove from pan.
Add salsa and preserves to pan; increase heat to medium-high
Cook 30 seconds or until slightly thick, stirring constantly.
Serve pork with salsa mixture.
Now we used 2 pork cutlets instead of the pork tenderloin, and it was great!

We served it with pan fried potatoes, and marinated grilled asparagus with Parmesan and spray butter. Yummy!
