  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 pound)
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Nutritional Facts

5 ounces cooked pork: 298 calories, 8g fat (2g saturated fat), 95mg cholesterol, 373mg sodium, 21g carbohydrate (20g sugars, 0 fiber), 34g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 5 lean meat, 1-1/2 starch, 1/2 fat.


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, garlic and ginger; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.

"While this was delicious, I thought it tasted more like an Asian grilled tenderloin than honey. The sesame and soy overwhelmed the honey. It was not as sweet as I thought it would be."
