Steps

1

Bring pork to room temperature 30 minutes before cooking.

2

Peel and slice onion. Add slices to large oval microwave-proof casserole dish (2.8 quart) with butter and cover with a glass top or plastic wrap to lock in steam. Cook for 3 minutes on 100% power. Remove dish from microwave, remove glass top/plastic wrap (be careful – steam is hot) and stir.

3

In a small bowl, combine chicken broth, garlic, Hoisin and Chinese Five Spice Powder.

4

Add tenderloins to dish with onions and pour chicken broth mixture overtop. Turn to coat well in liquid.

5

Place dish on top of metal rack. Cook, uncovered, on combination 1 STEAM GRILL for 30-35 minutes, turning once halfway through until just a hint of pink remains or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of meat registers at 160° F.

6

Remove tenderloins from sauce and set aside to rest.

7

Place uncovered dish back into microwave and cook on 100% power to slightly thicken sauce, approximately 5 minutes. Stir in lime rind and juice.

8

Thickly slice tenderloins and place on platter. Pour sauce over top and garnish with freshly chopped cilantro, if desired.
