Ingredients

For the Pork

  • 1 ½ pounds pork tenderloin
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil, divided
  • cup chopped green onions, plus more for garnish
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

For the Pineapple

  • 6 pineapple rings, halved
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar

For Serving

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 small head lettuce, use Boston, Bibb, or butter lettuce, leaves separated, washed, and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

Instructions 

  • Wrap the pork tenderloin in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. This will make it easier to slice it thin. DO NOT freeze it.
  • In a mixing bowl whisk together the soy sauce, sugar, ½ tablespoon sesame oil, green onions, garlic, and ginger.
  • Remove pork from freezer and slice it into about ¼-inch thick strips. Place the pork strips in the marinade, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the Sriracha, the honey, and the remaining sesame oil. Stir to combine and set aside for later.
  • Take pork out of the refrigerator and let stand for about 15 minutes on the counter, to bring it to room temperature.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet set over high heat. Using tongs, remove the pork from the marinade and transfer to the skillet. Discard marinade.
  • Cook the pork, stirring frequently, for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through.
  • In the meantime, preheat oven to 425˚F. Arrange halved pineapple rings on a baking sheet covered with foil. Sprinkle pineapple with brown sugar and bake in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden and caramelized. Remove from oven.
  • Remove pork from the heat.
  • Spoon several tablespoons of rice into the center of a lettuce leaf.
  • Top with a few pork strips, pineapple, sesame seeds, and drizzle with previously prepared chili mixture.
  • Garnish with green onions. Serve.
