  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Pepper


  • 1/2 cup Pineapple Juice
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup Rice Vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Turmeric


  • 1 lb Pork Tenderloin
  • 2 cups Green Cabbage shredded
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Mix the rub ingredients together and season the pork tenderloin on all sides. If you have time let it chill, covered in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • In a heavy-bottomed oven-safe or cast-iron skillet bring pineapple juice, honey, rice vinegar, dijon mustard, sesame oil, and turmeric to a simmer over medium heat, and cook, swirling occasionally until reduced to 3/4 cup, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of the glaze into a measuring cup. Add the shredded cabbage to the skillet and toss to coat. Layer the pork tenderloin on top of the cabbage and brush the remaining 1/4 cup of glaze on top.
  • Cook for 40 to 45 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145℉. Slice meat into 3/4-inch slices and serve with braised cabbage.
