  • 1 pork tenderloin, 1 1/2 pound

Reduce heat to low, add reserved marinade, onion, carrot and celery; cover and simmer 12-15 minutes until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.

To serve, slice tenderloin and serve with vegetables and hot cooked rice. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
