The freshly made easy Honey Garlic Pork Tenderloin recipe is much better than takeout. This Asian-inspired dish is about tender pork medallions cooked in the most flavourful honey garlic sauce with added snow peas and baby corn. The sweetness of honey and the saltiness of Tamari sauce blend beautifully with garlic and ginger.

The rich, thick sauce coats the pork tenderloin and the veggies with so much flavor. Add some rice or rice noodles for a hearty meal in a bowl. You don’t need anything beyond this for a relaxed night at home.

Is takeout food gluten-free?

If it were me, I would stay away from restaurants that serve takeout food labeled gluten-free. Many claim to have gluten-free takeout menus but no cross-contamination protocols. Also, restaurants use commercial spices that are not gluten-free.

For someone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, even a small amount of gluten can make them very sick. The only restaurants that I would order takeout food from are the ones that serve only gluten-free food.

Unfortunately, I have not found any Asian restaurants that serve only gluten-free food. Therefore, cooking at home is your only option if you crave takeout. This honey garlic pork tenderloin dish tastes like takeout, except healthier and gluten free!

Honey garlic pork tenderloin recipe under 30 minutes.

You will be pleasantly surprised to see how easy this honey garlic pork tenderloin recipe is. First, toss thinly sliced pork with arrowroot starch, black pepper, and sesame oil. 

Make the honey garlic sauce

Combine honey, tamari sauce, water, ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, and starch in a bowl.

Add the veggies

Sear the meat, add shallots, and then add the sauce. The sauce thickens very quickly. Add the snow peas, baby corn, and green onions as soon as the sauce thickens. Cook a few more minutes, and you are done!

Pork tenderloin cooks very quickly

The best part about pork tenderloin is it cooks very quickly, and it is the most tender part of pork. You will love this gluten-free Asian-inspired dish because it tastes better than the classic takeout dish.

Serving suggestions

My family loves the honey garlic pork tenderloin with Saffron Rice, Mint, and Caramelized Onions. I like to have it with zucchini noodles or tasty spaghetti squash noodles. To keep the carbs down.

However, if you want a heartier meal, serve it over rice noodles. This recipe includes extra sauce, so you have plenty to coat the noodles with.


In this super simple and easy recipe, little needs to be changed. However, you can use tapioca or cornstarch if you don’t have arrowroot starch. You can use bell peppers, mushrooms, or broccoli for the veggies. Replace shallots with finely chopped onion or sliced green onions. And although this recipe calls for honey, you can use maple syrup, coconut, or brown sugar if you don’t have honey.
