Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Mango Salsa

For years, I was under the common preconceived notion that food that was good for you could not possibly taste good and was probably too expensive to make on a budget. Websites like Skinnytaste have convinced me that I was wrong. I ran across Gina’s website while blog-stalking one day and have made or been inspired by many of her recipes. They are always full of flavor, reasonably priced, and appealing to my whole family. Thanks to Gina for helping me enjoy eating better.

1 tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp ground ginger
1 lb pork tenderloin
¼ cup Sweet Red Chili Sauce
1 T honey
1 tsp Sriracha

1 large mango, peeled and diced
2 T fresh cilantro, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T minced jalapeƱo
2 T lime juice
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine garlic powder, salt, and ginger. Rub evenly over pork and place tenderloin on a sprayed broiler pan. Mix chili sauce, honey, and Sriracha together in a small bowl. Brush sauce liberally over pork during the last 10 minutes of cooking. Roast pork for 40-45 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Remove pork from oven, cover with foil, and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.

While pork cooks, combine salsa ingredients in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Top sliced pork with salsa for serving.
