Pork Tenderloin with Peanut Sauce

  • Serves 4
  • Easy


The time has come to talk about this dish. So perfect, so rich and so tasty. And you really have no idea how easy it is to make. It will take you a maximum of 20 minutes to whip everything together. I discovered this amazing combination when I moved to the Netherlands and after I interacted with their Suriname inspired cuisine. Dutch people love to combine flavors that they borrowed from countries like Thailand, Suriname, Vietnam and Malaysia with European tastes.

The Peanut Sauce, Pindasauce as we call it here, is a rich and dense sauce, with custard-like texture, that compliments almost all sorts of meats. We eat it with pork and chicken mostly, but it tastes to delicious that we sometimes just dip bread in it for a little snack. It has a rich flavor and a hint of spiciness, that asks for a pork tenderloin touched only by salt and pepper.  The Pindasauce has a base of peanut butter and it requires a few ingredients that can be tricky to find:

  • You can replace the Ketjap Manis with the a sweet soy sauce or you can make it yourself by mixing in a sauce pan over fire 1/4 cup soy sauce and 1/3 cup brown sugar.
  • Sambal Oelek (Ulek) can be easily replaced by using Sriracha. If you cannot find this eather go for 1 tsp of chili powder and a few drops of vinegar.

And now for a super, extra, mega, moist pork tenderloin I have to tell you a little secret. You will need your oven and some patience. Below you will find the easiest way to make the juiciest piece of pork that you have ever tasted. Last but not least, we love to pair this deliciousness with rice and nuts, that we usually get from Lassie Rijst because it has the perfect balance of seeds. This delicious rice comes packed with almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and dried papaya.

The Juiciest Pork Tenderloin in the World

Preheat the oven on 180 C (360 F) and the pat the pork dry. Heat oil in a pan, when the oil is very hot, put in the pork tenderloins and fry for 1 minute on each side until you get a nice golden brownish look (max 4 minutes). Take the tenderloins out of the pan and season it with salt and pepper. Put it in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them rest on a board. Before serving your dish, pop the tenderloins in the oven for another 4 minutes. Slice diagonally and take a look. If it still looks raw inside place it in the oven for another 2 minutes.



In a sauce pan add the milk and heat it. Bring the peanut butter to the pan and mix using a whisk. Add all the other ingredients and cook until desired consistency. We like ours custard-like, so pretty thick, and we cook it for about 5 minutes.



We love this combination! Peanut sauce and sweet-sour vegetables is a pair made in heaven. Slice the cucumber thinly, dice the paprika and mix with vinegar, sugar and salt. Let it "marinate" for 15 minutes and you are ready to plate.
