Roasted Pork with Almond Butter Sauce

Baking a pork loin is an easy dinner choice, but you can dress it up with this rich and creamy sauce. The result is a special occasion dinner option, so invite your friends over tonight!

The sauce is similar to a peanut sauce and would be delicious served as a dip for chicken satay.
1 pork tenderloin
Sea salt and pepper
Olive oil

¼ cup almond butter
2 ½ tablespoons tamari sauce
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1 to 1 ½ teaspoons chili garlic sauce (add 1/2 teaspoon at a time until you reach desired heat level)

2 green onions, thinly sliced

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Rub pork with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat an ovenproof skillet to medium high. Brown pork on all sides. Place the pan in the oven and roast the pork about 20 minutes or until desired level of doneness.

While the pork is cooking, use a fork to mix together all the ingredients for the sauce. Blend until creamy.

To serve, place several slices of pork on a dish and top with sauce and some of the green onions.
