1 (1¼-lb.) pork tenderloin, trimmed

1/4 cup apricot preserves

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup ponzu

2 tbsp. creamy peanut butter

1 tbsp. rice vinegar

2 tsp. ground coriander

1 tsp. ground ginger

Chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place pork in a large resealable plastic bag.
  2. In a food processor add preserves, orange juice, ponzu, peanut butter, vinegar, coriander and ginger; process until smooth. Pour mixture into bag. Seal bag; refrigerate 20 minutes, turning bag once after 10 minutes.
  3. Remove pork from bag; reserve marinade. Place pork on a roasting rack set in a shallow roasting pan, and pat dry with paper towels. Roast pork 20 to 22 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 145°F (for medium-rare). Transfer pork to a platter; tent loosely with foil. Let pork stand 10 minutes before slicing into thin slices.
  4. Meanwhile, for the sauce, in a small saucepan bring marinade to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer; cook and stir 5 to 7 minutes or until sauce thickens to desired consistency. If desired, sprinkle cilantro evenly over pork, and serve with sauce.

Make it a meal: Serve with grilled bok choy and red pepper.
